Anger Management - Some of us are more passionate than others. God made some of us with greater emotions and passions. Anger is o.k. and appropriate in some situations. The Bible never says do not get angry, but admonishes us not to let anger be carried on too long or to influence our actions toward others in a permanent or violent way. It is when the anger is always there, when it overwhelms the life of the angry person and those around them, or when it constantly gets out of control that it is a problem and a sin. When anger controls you life, when it carries over from a situation to life style or holding grudges or when it can lead to harm of the angry person or someone else it needs to be controlled. Most people with anger issues have learned anger as a Control mechanism of others. They have a great need to control or perhaps to keep themselves separated from others. For others anger boils over when their pride is hurt. It is essential to try to find the source of the behavior so that the underlying issues can be dealt with and new more appropriate responses to situations can be learned and used.
