Practicing Christian Anger Management

Christian Anger ManagementPracticing christian anger management means keeping the Lord in mind when faced with difficult situations. Meditating using the Bible will remind you of all the instances when God was able to use His anger constructively and how He would like others to use their hostility. It may be helpful to write down Bible scriptures that reference hostility to remind yourself of how you should handle certain situations and people.

Christian Anger Management what it means

Jesus is almost always held up as the great, human example of love. He’s supposed to embody all that the Christian Anger Management should aspire to (WWJD). When a Christian does something mean, unloving, or gets anger..etc, they often say they messed up and need to be more Christ-like. But when one looks at the Bible objectively -i.e., without filtering it through a set of presuppositions that demand that it must all be (mis)interpreted so that it “looks good”- One can  see that having anger, hateful, vengeful, or even going on the out and out attack, is not really practicing Christian Anger Management and  not very Christ-like. It’s not the sort of thing Jesus would do.

The following are a few scriptures from the bible that you can reflect on to Practicing Christian Anger Management :

  • “People with a hot temper do foolish things; wiser people remain calm.” “If you stay calm, you are wise, but if you have a hot temper, you only show how stupid you are.” Proverbs 14 (17,29)
  • Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. (James 1:19-20)
  • Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:29-32)
  • Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:26-27, 31-32)
  • “Man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires” (James 1:20)
  • Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil. (Ephesians 4:31-32)
  • Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. (Psalm 37:8)
