OUTBURSTS OF ANGERNow, I don't know how it's printed in your Bible . . . but when I read that cluster of verses, mine is bold and red and in all caps. It screams at me.
It screams loud . . . because just after it, the page whispers to me how I'm supposed to be acting: with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.
So how does one slay the inner Trogdor? Well, Paul gave some good advice to the Colossians: Put aside anger, wrath, and malice . . . and put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patiences . . . and be thankful.
Guess it's a good thing we're promised that we can't do the impossible in our own strength.
