We shouldn’t look at anger as if it’s something outside of our control. If we get angry, it’s because we allowed ourselves to do so. In Proverbs it says, “He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city” Proverbs 16:32 (NKJV).
If we choose to understand that anger is a choice, we will begin to realize it is something we can control. Until we believe it’s a choice, we will continue to struggle with negative outbursts.
