II Peter 1:5(GNT) For this very reason do your best to add goodness to your faith; to your goodness add knowledge; 6 to your knowledge add self-control; to your self-control add endurance; to your endurance add godliness.
Beware of the destructive patterns of anger in you and those around you.
Sisters and brothers people who are angry without knowing why express their anger in unhealthy and destructive ways.
This type of anger can be one of the most dangerous types of anger because there’s not an obvious cause.
This leaves the angry person unable to constructively express his or her anger because he or she can’t identify its cause, and for this reason it’s unpredictable.
Neither the angry person nor his loved ones are quite sure why or what sets them off. They only know that sooner or later it’s going to happen again.
We need to have a healthy expression of our anger, or it will destroy us and those in our lives.
Many people live their lives like this today. Noted Author Karl Bednarik says this about free-floating anger:
“This is inarticulate anger because it does not even know what it wants, and when it reaches the point of action, the action directs itself at random targets, comes to light in mysterious acts of violence, outbursts of blind rage, incoherent criticism, aimless resentment, dreary grumbling, or else in apathetic, helpless, sulky resignation, This explosion usually, in fact, nearly always—involves innocent people.”
Point to ponder
If you or someone you know struggles with this type of anger you must identify or find a way to help them locate the source to heal.
