I heard a story about a little girl who would just lose it several times a day and she would display what was inside her in dramatic fashion. Finally her mother gave her a hammer and a box of nails, and told her that every time she lost her temper, she should go out in the back yard a drive a nail into the fence.
The first day she drove 37 nails into the fence. The next day a few less, and on and on until one day she came in and proudly announced that she did not have to drive any nails that day. The next day she said the same thing and her mother told her to go and remove a nail from the fence. This continued until one day she said there are no more nails left in the fence. Her mother took her out to the fence and congratulated her and then said; look at the holes that are left.
This lesson should speak to all caring people for even though you repent and say I’m sorry there is still the hole caused by the nail. Though you fill the hole with love it can only be repaired, the scar remains.
People without a temper are not as effective as those with it, but those who cannot control it come near to being a negative in the kingdom of GOD.
You can look at the men of GOD in the Old and New Testaments and you find they were men of temper. Moses did not control his anger and killed an Egyptian man. He also let his anger get away from him and broke the Ten Commandments.
Ex.32:19 It came about, as soon as Moses came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing; and Moses' anger burned, and he threw the tablets from his hands and shattered them at the foot of the mountain.
Jesus went through the temple and ran all of those who were selling merchandise there out of the temple;
Matt. 21:12“Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons.”
Jesus the Son of God was flat out angry and it showed.
This is an age where unrighteousness is rampant, and as Christians it is right to be angry about this, but we must have a controlled anger and raise up a standard against it.
Letting our anger get out of control just plays into the hands of unrighteous people.
In dealing with personal relationships, don’t let your anger be destructive. In dealing with unrighteous acts and deeds let controlled anger strengthen your resolve to stand against it.
The time will come when GOD no longer controls his anger and his judgment will fall upon unrighteousness, and every mouth will be closed.
Deut. 32:35 Vengeance is mine, and I will recompense; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and their doom comes swiftly.
