How To Keep Your Cool

Nov 7, 2021    Dr. Delman Coates
One of the often-overlooked problems within American society is the problem of anger. Whether it’s road rage, domestic violence, angry TV commentators, or even angry politicians, we are in a society that is drowning in anger. Thankfully, Scripture has a lot to say about how to handle our anger. Psalm 37:8 says to not give into anger because it only leads to trouble. James 1:19-20 says to be slow to anger because anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. And then of course, there’s the story of Moses. And if anyone needed to learn how to control his anger and keep his cool, it was him. We can learn from Moses in Exodus 2 that anger can ruin our lives if we’re not careful. Out of anger, we can say and do things that we’ll regret. So in order to not make that mistake, here are three steps you can take to make sure your anger doesn’t get the best of you.
