#2 Purge Anger

4 Sep

God’s Word:  Proverbs 22:24,25

God’s Message to Me:

Be kind to everyone but don’t choose friends that are hot-heads.  The drama that comes from hot-heads will consume your life and drag you down.  And it is all so useless.  Don’t let yourself get sucked into their drama.  It is unending and a waste of time that could be spent doing something constructive.

And besides—anger is contagious.  Many a revolution was caused by a group of hot-heads that stirred up the crowds.  The crowds often are not wanting to get involved but someone how get drawn into the drams before they realize it.

Therefore—don’t hang around angry people.  Their anger is as contagious as the measles and will infect you before you know it.  You will end up with the same disease and pay the price of your choice of friends.  How many people end up in prison because they hung out with the wrong people—with hot-heads that let themselves get out of control!

God’s Question to Me:  Will you help your hot-headed acquaintances by helping diffuse their anger and not allowing yourself to be dragged into their endless temper tantrums?

God’s Promise to Me:   Those who hang out with angry people will suffer the same consequences that their anger initiates.

My Song to God:         Reach out to Jesus    by Ralph Carmichael

Is your burden heavy as you bear it all alone?
Does the road you travel harbor dangers yet unknown?
Are you growing weary in the struggle of it all?
Jesus will help you, when on His name you call.

He is always there hearing every prayer faithful and true
Walking by our side in His love we hide, all the day through.
When you get discouraged just remember what to do,
Reach out to Jesus, He’s reaching out to you.

Is the life you’re living filled with sorrow and despair?
Does the future press you with its worries and its care?
Are you tired and friendless,
Have you almost lost your way?
Jesus will help you, just call on Him today.

He is always there hearing every prayer faithful and true
Walking by our side in His love we hide, all the day through.
When you get discouraged just remember what to do,
Reach out to Jesus, come on and reach out to Jesus,
I said to reach out to Jesus,
He’s reaching out to you.
