Anger

Psalm 141:3

Psalm 141:3

Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

After Thought

The Bible says that "out of that which fills the heart the mouth speaks" (Luke 6:45). This explains why David wanted God to help control his speech so that in anger no vain or inappropriate word would come out during his prayer time that would defile it.

James 3:10

James 3:10

Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

After Thought

A blessing is a circle of light drawn around a person to protect, heal and strengthen. That would imply that cursing is a circle of darkness drawn around a person to defeat, sicken, and weaken.

Psalm 37:8

Psalm 37:8

Cease from anger and forsake wrath; Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.

After Thought

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
