Seven Biblical Ways to Handle Anger

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number ten of this series Seven Biblical Ways to Handle Anger.

All Christians know that the greatest commandment is love, but what about anger. The Bible answers this question, and has biblical commands to help every Christian.

Seven biblical ways to handle anger:

  1. A Christian can be angry, but do not sin, and do not let the sundown go down on your anger.
  2. Get over anger quickly, the Bible says to put it away along with all harmful thoughts that surrounds the anger.
  3. Be slow to anger is coupled with be slow to speak.
  4. Do not pray in anger. It is not surprising that Paul tells us to pray without anger or quarreling. Paul certainly means while you are praying, but Paul also wants the same instructions to apply to your Christian life such that anger and quarreling are not present in your life.
  5. Do not provoke children to anger. Bring children up in discipline, but the discipline that is filled with love.
  6. To put anger out of your life you need to remove the things that go with anger such as, bitterness, wrath, clamor, and slander.
  7. Anger does not produce the righteousness of God. Anything of anger is not of God.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series, and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
