DO NOT SIN IN YOUR ANGER
Eph. 4; 26 ‘do not sin in your anger.Do not let the sun go down on your anger.
A while ago I asked the Lord to show me the condition of the church.
The Lord said to me, ‘have a look at the average marriage in the church and you will see the condition of the church.’
I started praying about this, and not long after praying, I came across this research.
Isaiah 50;2 says that your sins have separated you from your God and made his face hide from you.
When strife comes in to a relationship, the first thing that leaves is communication or let me rather say, the first thing that raises itself is the volume of the voice and then silence because the separation between the two.
This is the intentions the devil. The devil wants disunity, distance between the two and separation. When the separation is achieved through the works of disunity, The Word of God says, ‘God will not command a blessing.’
It is most important to seek unity and peace. This is done through repentance and forgiveness.
A professor while teaching, asked his students, “Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?”
The students thought for awhile. One said, “because we lose our calmness.” But the professor asked again, “why shout when the other person is just next to you? Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you are angry?”
The students gave some other reasons but none satisfied the professor.
Finally, he explained, “when two people are angry at each other, there is a distance in their heart psychologically. To cover the distance, they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will shout to hear each other through that great distance.” Then the professor asked, ”what happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are psychologically close. The distance between them is very close.” The professor continued, “when they love each other even more, what happens? They don’t speak, they only whisper and they even get closer to each other in their love. Finally, they even need not to whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all…”
So, next time you shout on a loved one know that you are creating distance between your heart and that person’s heart.
If you are to shout, then shout for the right reason.
There are four reasons to shout.
1. The shout the changes the atmosphere.
2. The shout of war.
3. The shout the face.
4. The shout of joy.
