“Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent.”
How many of us fail at this? I do. Daily. I did just last night. It is so easy to get caught up in the heat of a moment and lash out. It’s easy to say things you don’t necessarily mean or do things you may regret. It’s easy to have everything you’ve been working so hard on fall apart: not responding in anger, showing control over your emotions, letting things roll off your back. This scripture tells us how to do it and simple enough. In two sentences, like everything else, give it to God. It always comes back to those four words: Give It To God. We sin everyday, but I never thought about my emotions causing me to sin. It makes sense though. Anger can cause us to say and do things we normally wouldn’t or shouldn’t. “Think about it over night.” SO Accurate. I may go to bed fired up, then wake up in the morning and be fine. I sometimes even do that in a time span of ten minutes. By the time I leave a place and then get home I’m not mad anymore. This scripture speaks straight to me. I feel God parenting me. It’s funny how he does it! The best way to interpret this for me is- Give it to God, it’s not worth it!
