10 Bible Teachings On Anger Management

4. My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires (James 1:19-20).

The above scripture encourages re-evaluation of your actions. Rethink before making it into action so that you wouldn’t have to regret. As the scripture shows, the Lord is not quick to get enraged therefore, there is eminence of letting go as much as you can or let the things slide. There should be lesser things that bother you or disturb your inner peace.

5. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips (Colossians 3:18).

Bible highlights that when you are experiencing rage, it is important that you allow yourself to feel it. By feeling it, you are learning to experience the negative sentiments as well as keeping in mind that you should not allow these sentiments to control you. Therefore, it is safe to feel the angry emotions in a constructive way and vent and then release it. If these sentiments are accumulated, they obstruct abundance and manifestation capabilities as well as make us intolerable to be around.

6. Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools (Ecclesiastes 7:9).

Wisdom leaves when anger rules the body and mind. Scripture says that it is the virtue of the stupid to culminate anger.

7. Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath (Ecclesiastes 4:26).

The acknowledgement that you are feeling angry, the realization that there is a shift in your mood towards angrier side is important. Bible is not presenting us with idealization that humans would not feel angry. Rather, Bible also acknowledges that anger is part of human experience, and it then guides on how to handle this experience.
