The emotion of anger was given to us to so that we may know peace. Even when justified, our response to a situation with anger should serve as an immediate signal that we are much better designed than to harbor or carry it. Anger will always get in the way of resolve and levy a tax on your physical and emotional health. Peace is an alternative that is always at hand, and will carry the day as we respond to situations with love, open-mindedness and patience. Holding on to anger is a waste of time and interferes with those more suitable emotions.
Unclench those fists and may God’s peace overwhelm every one of your thoughts and encounters today and forever.
