Reflections on TFB's June 15, 2008 Sunday sermon.
Anger is not sin. Our response is another thing altogether.
"anger" and "angry" in Proverbs
Proverbs 14:29Tag(s): sermon responsibility
Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
A soft answer turns away wrath,but a harsh word stirs up anger.
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife,but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
Good sense makes one slow to anger,and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
The terror of a king is like the growling of a lion;whoever provokes him to anger forfeits his life.
A gift in secret averts anger,and a concealed bribe, strong wrath.
The mouth of forbidden women is a deep pit; he with whom the LORD is angry will fall into it.
Make no friendship with a man given to anger,nor go with a wrathful man,
lest the LORD see it and be displeased,and turn away his anger from him.
The north wind brings forth rain,and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming,but who can stand before jealousy?
A man of wrath stirs up strife,and one given to anger causes much transgression.
For pressing milk produces curds,pressing the nose produces blood,and pressing anger produces strife.
