A Hot Temper…

A hot temper…

1. Drives a wedge between you and your loved ones. Angry people intimidate others and rob them of their sense of security. Psychologists say it’s a leading cause of divorce, child abuse, and addiction.

2. Undermines a life that pleases God. James 1:19-20 says, “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.” Your anger isn’t just “your own business,” it’s God’s business too because it hinders your ability to live the life He intended.

3. Blinds you to reality. Looking through the lens of misguided anger, you see only what you choose to see. It causes you to focus on options like revenge and retribution.
