This cute line is easier said than done. In reality, the opposite of happy (anger) is very common in our society. Even though we have so many material things, we still seem to be unhappy. Whatever the cause of anger, we can see that it is a futile waste of time. Gods’ Word, the Bible, has much to say on this subject.
“Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.” Psalm 37:8 (KJV)
Anger is like a poison. It infects and affects every part of a person’s life. It causes violence, heartache and broken relationships. To put it mildly, it isn’t something you want around for very long. Yet, it seems that so many today turn to it as an outlet for their frustrations.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.” Proverbs 16:32 (KJV)
Through the power of God we can control the tendency to let our anger get out of control. When God controls our spirit (attitude) he leads us to still waters and green pastures. All of us have failed and let our anger get out of control but thank God he forgives and gives us another chance to get it right.
