Have you ever confronted someone with anger because you felt that you were offended or wronged in some way? Did you make the situation better or worse? Taking matters into your own hands may have allowed you to feel better for a little while. Maybe you said something you later regretted. Most of us can say we have found ourselves in both situations. More than an exchange of hurtful words can occur when we act with anger. Possible injuries or even death could be the result when a person acts in anger.
It is not easy to walk away from every negative situation that comes our way. I do believe there are some instances in which we must defend ourselves or others, but there is a proper way of handling those situations. The best way to handle negative situations is to give them to the Lord. Reacting to these situations with anger more than likely will not give you the results that you desire.
19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. James 1:19,20 NKJV
