ANGER HURTS OTHERS WHEN…

…You hold on it too long (Eph. 4:26).

…You refuse to forgive (Matt. 6:14-15).

…You attack the person, not the problem (Col.3:8).

…You let it become a habit (Prov. 19:11).

…You lose control (Prov. 14:17).

…You become abusive (Eph. 4:31).

…You hurt those you love (Prov. 29:22).

…You react rather than respond (Prov. 15:18).

…You dwell on it constantly (Eccl. 7:9).

…You damage someone’s reputation (Prov. 11:9).

“For every minute you remain angry, you give up 60 seconds of peace of mind.” –Emerson

–Ken Weliever, The Preacherman
