Like all kids, I suppose, I would occasionally get angry, usually at my brother or sister.
One day I noticed something. Sometimes as my anger cooled, I still wanted to feel angry. I didn’t want to be un-angry.
The Bible calls this attitude “implacable.” An unwillingness to calm down, an unwillingness to make peace.
Paul made two statements about my anger:
“Be angry, and sin not.”
“Let not the sun go down on your anger.” (Ephesians 4:26)
God is eager to restore my Joy. But not while I’m loving my anger.
He’s given me the choice.
