Be Angry And Do Not Sin.

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil. Eph 4:26-27


1. Do not let the sun go down on your anger. For anger lodges in the heart of fools. Eph 4:26, Ecc 7:9

2. Be not quick in your spirit to become angry. Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger. Ecc 7:9, Jam 1:19

3. Never avenge yourselves. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Rom 12:19-20

4. Overlook an offense. Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense. Prov 19:11 The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult. Prov 12:16.

5. Refrain…Forsake…and Fret not. Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. Psalm 37:8

6. Ponder in your own heart, and be silent. Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Psa 4:4 When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent. Prov 10:19. The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things. Prov 15:28. Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him. Prov 29:20. “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. Matt 18:15

7. Put Anger Away…Forgive. 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. Eph 4:31-32

8. Quietly Hold it back. A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back. Prov 29:11

9. Rule Your Spirit. Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. Prov 16:32. A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls. Prov 25:28

10. Overcome evil with good. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Rom 12:21. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Rom 12:19-20
