Forgiveness For Angry Men
Do you want to be forgiven for your anger?
This is Vince Miller.
Our text today is from Ephesians 4:31-32. It reads:
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. — Ephesians 4:31-32
There’s enough anger in our world today. You can see it and hear it everywhere. Angry people are all around you if you stop to look. And while you are free to live, act, and speak this way, doing this has a lasting impact on others. So why not address the real issue — the heart? Your heart.
Could it be that some aspects of “bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and slander” live deep within your heart? Could it be time to let it go and forgive your former spouse, your current boss, your father’s shortcomings, and maybe even the grudge you hold within yourself?
Instead, use the freedom and words you are given to “be kind and forgive.” Do so from a genuine and “tender heart.” After all, Christ showed you how to do this by first “forgiving you.” But to live this way, you are going to have to accept his forgiveness. And from deep well, you will be able to forgive others as well.
Here is your call to action today:
Accept Christ’s forgiveness for all your anger. And then forgive others like Christ forgave you.
