Psalm 37:8

Psalm 37: 8
Give up your anger, abandon your wrath;
do not be provoked; it brings only harm.

This is something so important to remember during times when it feels like everything you hear about in the news is worth getting angry about.  But what purpose is that anger going to bring?  You can disagree with something that work to fix it without showing anger.  This verse reminds us to keep control of our anger so we do not being ourselves and others undo harm.

What are some strategies that you use to keep yourself from getting angry.

Dear Lord, Help me to control my anger.
