    Sometimes we will get angry, but we want to control our anger so that we don't sin by doing or saying something bad. We should try to settle matters as soon as possible.

    24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Now the new man inside me is the Holy Spirit of God that will guide me in truth. The flesh will still sin, but the washing of sin is the reading the Word of God. Thank God for the two edged sword. Love in Christ

    The Lord and His word are meant to be taken personally. Weather good or bad, it is always His decision. His word is " do not let the sun go down on your anger". Honesty, integrity, humility and The Fear of The Lord. This leads to life.
