Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Expressions of anger. It is wise to patient and in control, but definitively not passive and indifferent. We must be capable of righteous anger and indignation. Jesus, help me to be anger but not sin. To be like you when you were confronted with great sin and gross disobedience to the principles of your word. Not like the fool who is quick to express anger and pride. Certainly, anger kills a stubborn fool, and jealousy murders a gullible person. A fool’s anger is known at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult. LORD Jesus, help me to have gentle answer that deflects anger, staying away from harsh words make tempers flare. Let me wise and judicious when it comes to expressing my anger. Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? There is that tension of confronting sin. We need more grace and not anger. God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Grace trumps anger.

Meditate Ps. 37:8
