Beware Your Anger

Beware of Your Anger

beware of anger

It’s the most dangerous, darkest thing— an unaccountable simmering rage, a bitterness that billows up to bite you when it breathes, that latches on to a body with the fangs of a hydra and the swallowing capabilities of a python.

It’s something that is more obvious exteriorly, but more carcinogenic interiorly. It eats away—slowly, gradually, painfully with a hurt that is automatically projected outwards—at the soul, while the fumes of the decomposing spirit fill the surroundings with toxins.

You could call it a fire—for as such, fueled by fury, it thrives on conflicting pain and igniting conflict. The more you roar, the more it grows; the bigger it gets, the faster it will consume you.

——
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret-it leads only to evil (Psalm 37:8)
