Why are you angry?

The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen?

~ Genesis 4:6, ESV ~

Anger, unchecked, is a problem that correlates with problems we have within our relationships. Some of us may have held back our anger and resentment and bitterness has blossomed. Others may have indulged in their anger and ended up becoming abusive. Yet, there are those who became quite frightened of anger where they closed off any dialogue and isolate themselves.

Unchecked anger wastes time and energy, especially when we focus it on those who may not be significant in our lives. Do we truly want them to become that important to us? Do we want relationships that are important to us become frozen when we are not open and respectful? It isn’t possible to be close to someone and not experience anger. 

With healthy dialogue, we are empowered to hear those close to us express their anger as we allow ourselves to be respectful and open about our own anger. Through transparent communication, we are able to resolve our anger. If not, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you, (cf. Genesis 4:6-8).

Today, let us be aware of those people we are making important in our lives and will grow in dealing with our anger.

  1. It sure is, as I see God is merciful, has been from the first time Adam sinned against him in unbelief to death would happen if he ate from that tree.

    He did not believe God when he saw Eve eat and not die right away as he thought would happen then. It did not, so what entered in? DOUBT

    What has been happening ever since? DOUBT



    And see the freedom given us to just love all, period, no matter what.
    That is the new mindset, given us in learning truth over errors of this place we are in


  2. Oh and oh how I have been angry, and agreed and tried not to be, and failed at it, in trying not to be angered.

    Not until one let’s go and trusts God to purge this from you, I see me not letting go, I get angered again

    Leaning to be purged from this to where it does not exist. When purged from this how can it take control of me, you, or anyone else again.

    Hebrews 1:1-4

    Hebrews 10:17
