The Root Of Anger


Angry behavior reveals our desire to govern our own lives on our own terms, rather than submit to God and live our lives on His terms. As its root, anger is a desire to exalt and worship self and is a refusal to yield to the authority and lordship of Christ.
Read Colossians 3:12-15

LOL...well now, The Lord certainly brought you near my blog at the right time. I noticed you had me listed on your blog following, stopped by and OUCH. What a note.

And just what I needed to be reminded of. I have moments (far too many I'm ashamed to admit...) where I definitely carry too much of an angry spirit in my day.

I'm printing this off and posting it around as a reminder.
Thank you!
