Dear friends

Dear friends, in the light of recent terrible events in our world, I’m posting an extra blog today.  Please read, and pass on, if you wish.

With love from Ruth XXXX

 

Don’t sin by letting anger control you (Psalm 4:4; NLT).

People with understanding control their anger (Proverbs 14:29; NLT).

Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back (Proverbs 29:11; NLT).

Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God (Romans 12:19; NLT).

Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires (James 1:20; NLT).

******************************************

 

Dear friends,

Unless we acknowledge
And control

The stored-up anger
Hidden in our shadow self,

We unconsciously project it
On to others,

Making them the cause
Of all the fury and frustration

We can’t face
In ourselves.

Then, it’s just a short
But fatal step

To take revenge
On those we now see as our ‘enemies’ –

With hatred,
And with violence,

And with death.
