How do you respond to anger? (9)

Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent. Interlude
Psalms 4:4 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/psa.4.4.NLT
When you get mad do you instantly snap? Do you let it boil under the surface, simmering until you are ready to explode? It takes a lot to make me mad, to which I am very grateful. When I do get mad I can’t say I remain silent and think about it overnight.

This is of course the best option to handling any situation where someone makes you angry. I never saw this scripture before. I have always heard the one from Ephesians.

While this verse is different from Psalms the concept is similar. Don’t be controlled by anger. Try to resolve things while you are upset, don’t let your anger linger but if you can’t handle it sleep on it before you say something you regret.
