From Anger to Love

Are you threatened by rejection and/or fear? Motivated by selfish interests, setting your prestige over the feelings and desires of others? Threatened by compulsion? All these among others are the precursors of anger. Anger is an intense emotional state that involves a response to uncomfortable threats and situations.

The adolescent period is characterized by constant changes (physically, socially and emotionally) to figure out who we are and who we need to be. This metamorphosis takes an adolescent through so many unpredictable and sometimes unstable emotions. It can be a positive or negative emotion.

Anger when managed properly can help you to work through unhealthy situations. Importantly, the energy you radiate must not be to another persons detriment. Your feedback to situations determines your maturity.

Here are some examples. When the first man sinned and disobeyed, God’s expression of love was that all men should be saved and come to the knowledge of Him through Jesus. God is the perfect expression of love. Moreover, Moses acted based on the grief of the children of Israel and struck the Rock twice for water (Numbers 20:1-12), punishment followed!

Not all situations or words will go down well with us. We have to understand every situation and focus more on keeping our cool. Just the words we say alone have a role to play when angry. Understand that choosing peace as against violence alone is able to save the soul of another man. Proverbs 15:1 says,

“A soft answer turns away wrath; but grievous words stir up anger”.

Here is the truth! Anger in itself is no sin but the expression is what holds the possibility of sin. Anger is more of a psychological change and it can consume the soul of man if allowed to take over our reasoning. God’s expression of love helps us to overcome through the Holy Spirit. We express His presence through the fruits that we bear. Giving full expression to the Fruit of the Spirit in us (Galatians 5:22-23) takes away the torments that anger might bring and most importantly, enable us to give a Godly feedback. We therefore walk in love with all men, for there is no fear in love.

Beloved, let us walk in love. For love is the base upon which God’s power manifests (1 Corinthians 13). We are spirit beings therefore, let us act accordingly by following after peace with all men (Hebrews 12:14). Be careful to listen/judge; correct and instruct in love. When angered, be careful in other not to sin. Never let the sun go down on your anger (Ephesians 4:26 – 27). Give no room for fear and grow in love because love is what happens when you forgive. Instead of getting angered, act with love.

Remember! 70 times 7, Jesus taught us.
