Psalms 4:4

Be angry, and do not sin.
Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah

Anger could be a good thing and a bad thing.
Notice it says to be angry, but do not sin, meaning anger itself is not a sin, for there is righteous anger, but there is also anger that is sinful.
If we follow what the bible says and an angry thought comes in our head, we should stop and meditate on this anger. Now this doesn't mean we think about it so it consumes us and we get even more angry at the person, adding things to it that really have nothing to do with our anger in the first place.
This happens a lot in marriages and close relationships with friends or family. Someone will do or say something that makes us angry and we keep silent and think about it. Soon we are thinking of other times when this person may have messed up and we get angrier with the person. All of a sudden our anger has turned into murder in our hearts.

So what are we suppose to do then?
We think about this anger and why we are angry in the first place. We think about why this person may have done or said what he or she did and if they need ministering to, then we go and help them. Or sometimes as we think about it, it's not the person who is wrong but ourselves that are wrong.

So next time you get angry with someone, stop before you blow up in their face and ask the Lord to help you see things in the right perspective and to act as He would have you to, and that is always out of love.
