Ephesians 4:31-32
Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of malicious behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

Anger is an emotion everyone feels. Even Christ got angry when He entered the Temple and saw buying and selling of merchandise in this holy area. Jesus was angry but did not sin. Anger is a coping mechanism, but we must be careful how we act in anger.

Controlling anger is difficult, especially in today's society when we tend to have short fuses and rile easily.

Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God (Matthew 5:9). Our goal should be to bring love in to the world. We show love by being polite and gentle, not harsh and abrasive. We should never use foul or abusive language, but let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will encourage. Learn to respond to anger as an opportunity to do good in these evil days. Don't act thoughtlessly. When someone is being obnoxious or abusive, respond with a gentle answer. The Bible tells us to anger and sin not. It is not an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. We are to turn the other cheek. That is a command of the Lord. We are subject to judgment if we sin in anger.

Don't let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil. Try to make amends with the person you are angry with. Make an effort to act in a Christian manner.

5 steps to deal with anger:
1. Think before you speak
2. Ask the Lord to bridle your tongue
3. Take a deep breath and count to ten
4. Pray
5. Be an example of Christian love

Don't get tired of doing good. Love your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you. Be the stronger person and walk away.
