    Higher Everyday Devotional By Pastor W.F Kumuyi, June 12, 2017— DANGER OF ANGER

    Higher Everyday Devotional By Pastor W.F Kumuyi, June 12, 2017

    TOPIC: DANGER OF ANGER


    BIBLE TEXT: PROVERBS 29:22"An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression" (Proverbs 29:22).

    Considering the danger of anger, Tryon Edwards said, "To rule ones anger is well, to prevent it is even better." A Christian should be consciously aware of those things that can provoke one to anger, and by the grace of God take precaution to avoid being trapped by them.

    Anger results from intentional or unintentional provocation, misunderstanding, wickedness, denial of rights, false accusation, and oppression. Anger affects health negatively and also leads to other regrettable consequences.

     A typical biblical example is the account of Simeon and Levi. The duo were cursed by Jacob their father at his death due to their fierce anger (Genesis 49:7) and thus, Simeon later became the smallest tribe in Israel and was not given a separate portion of land, but partook of that of Judah (Joshua 19:1), while Levi had no inheritance in Israel but was given scattered cities (Joshua 13:33).

     The scripture's counsel is, " Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil" (Psalms 37:8). Be saved and sanctified to overcome anger.
