How Christians Deal with Anger

Anger is a normal human emotion.  According to Ephesians 4:26 (NIV) “In your anger do not sin; Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.”  God acknowledges here that we will experience anger, however, we should not let our anger control us.  Anger is a strong emotion that one feels when in distress, and what makes it dangerous is the way we react to it.  According to Romans 12:21 (NIV) “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”  This is an instruction on how to deal with anger.

The first thing to do when dealing with anger is to acknowledge that there is a conflict present.  Just like everyone, Christians are not spared from conflict.  The next thing to do is to realize the conflict must be confronted.  Unfortunately, not all people are open to the idea of confronting their problems.  This is part of why people carry their anger for a long time as they avoid confronting the source of their anger.  There are ways to confront problems positively, so don’t delay the solution.   Dealing with anger properly can bring positive change.

Seek help from your pastor or counselor.  Also, involve your family with what you are going through.  Getting their love and support works wonders, and you will be able to deal with the situation with more ease.
