We have our Eye on Your Bottom Line

Anger – Getting angry is a fact of life. How you respond when you are angry can set the tone for the rest of your life. Often when we are angry, we say things we wish we hadn’t. Give yourself a little time when you are upset before approaching whoever upset you. Keep in mind that words written in anger cannot be taken back. If you write someone a letter or send them an email when you are angry, those words may be read over and over again. Most of the time it is better to talk to the person who upset you. Tell them how their actions affected you. It is important to stay away from attacking the person’s character; focus instead on what the person did. Before addressing someone who upset you, think back to a time when you may have upset someone by something you said or did. Maybe you didn’t mean to do it, but it happened. Did you ask for their forgiveness? Keep in mind that not one of us is perfect. So don’t let anger get in the way of having great relationships in your life. When you sense yourself getting angry ask God for calmness to deal with the situation. God’s word says the following when it comes to anger:

Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry; for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. (James 1: 19-20)
