STOP AND THINK – Anger may be handled wrongly in either one of two ways: blowing up and clamming up. (Jay E. Adams, Christian author and counselor)

Do you ever get mad? How do you respond in situations that make you angry? Some of us just clam up, as Adams suggests. We just don’t want to talk about it, and we’re certainly not going to share our problem with anyone else. Others of us vent our anger and strike out at those around us. Neither response is healthy, of course. Better to learn self control.

In your anger do not sin; do not let the sun go down while you are still angry (Ephesians 4:26).
