5 Tips for Biblical Anger Management

Anger, Biblical ways to manage anger, control temper, dangers of anger
I lost my temper the other day.

So I need this reminder about Biblical anger management. Maybe some of you could use it too.

So how do we control the ugly anger monster?
Here’s some things I’m doing that have helped me in the past.
1. Memorize verses relating to anger (e.g. Prov. 16:32; 19:11; 29:11).
Reciting, memorizing and meditating on God’s Word changes us supernaturally.

2. Listen carefully and think before speaking—this helps us avoid misunderstandings that lead to anger (James 1:19-20).

3. Ask God to show us the underlying sins that led to our anger (James 4:1,2).

4. Deal with problems quickly (Ephesians 4:26). Unresolved problems grow worse.

5. Realize the danger of unresolved anger--it gives Satan control in our lives (Ephesians 4:27).

Only God can change us, but these things help us yield our will to His.
