Something bothering you?


What a face!  And from one so young!  Anger can happen to anyone, at any age.  But does it have value in a positive way?  Most of the time, NO!  Yet, most of us are angry one time or another, for whatever reason.  Paul mentions this in the book of Galatians...

Galatians 5:16-21 (WEB)


16) But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh.

17) For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire.

18) But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19) Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness,

20) idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies,

21) envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

That it is a work of the flesh, there is no doubt.  That there is more than one kind is obvious from observations in life.  All anger is not the same, but the sort that bursts out can be very, very dangerous indeed.  How many crimes of passion have occurred because of this??  Yet, anger could motivate you to defend yourself and save your life.  You be the judge.  One thing seems clear to me... control it, or it will control you.

Jos 15:1 The lot for the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families was to the border of Edom, even to the wilderness of Zin southward, at the uttermost part of the south.

Jos 15:2 Their south border was from the uttermost part of the Salt Sea, from the bay that looks southward;

Jos 15:3 and it went out southward of the ascent of Akrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and went up by the south of Kadesh Barnea, and passed along by Hezron, went up to Addar, and turned about to Karka;

Jos 15:4 and it passed along to Azmon, went out at the brook of Egypt; and the border ended at the sea. This shall be your south border.

Jos 15:17 Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife.

Jos 15:18 It happened, when she came, that she had him ask her father fore a field. She got off of her donkey, and Caleb said, "What do you want?"

Jos 15:19 She said, "Give me a blessing. Because you have set me in the land of the South, give me also springs of water." He gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
