“A man of wrath stirs up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeases strife.” (Proverbs 15:18)

Wrath is a strong, vengeful anger; it is an uncontrolled form of anger that leads to rage and, subsequently, to evil.

Beloved, the opening scripture points out to us how dangerous wrath is—a man full of wrath can stir up strife. Such a man only creates an atmosphere of violent conflict and confusion.
Anger is an emotional condition that can be used for a good or bad course.

Beloved, when Jesus Christ went to the temple and saw people selling in the temple, He was angry and drove all of them out with a whip; this kind of anger is called righteous anger because it propelled Him to work for God (John 2:13–17).

We are encouraged to be slow to anger, meaning that we should check our anger and ensure that it fulfills the righteousness of God (Ephes 4:26–27).

Where there is confusion and chaos, our righteous anger can calm the situation or bring it under control. Praise the Lord!

Prayer Point:

My Father and my God, I’m so grateful to come into contact with Your Word each day. I bless Your name. Indeed, anger or wrath can be used for good or evil. Please lead me and guide me to use anger or wrath for Your righteous course, to bring deliverance and blessings to people in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
