“You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness.” James 1:19-20

They say you have every right to anger and you reply that ‘yes,’ that anger lies in your bosom. So then what are you? A fool?

How do you think the righteousness of God will abide in you and produce forth greater works when you are so filled up with anger inside of you? In what way will you be able to manifest your Christ-like image when you don’t know how to keep your mouth shut in certain situations?

I keep saying this, to be a real Christian is not all about praying or frequenting church with great enthusiasm. Christianity starts from you, the believer, and what people sees as Christianity in you is your attitude, your behaviours, your character and of course the way you deal with people.

If you are fond of talking anyhow, or jumping rudely into other people’s discussion or private affair, then you are not yet fully a true Christian even if you think you are.

A true Christian is a child of God. He carries the image and character of God. He loves to obey whatever instruction God lays down for him in the Bible. And he is very conscious of what comes out of his mouth.

Do not fall into the habit to speaking out your mind even if you are on the right track. Wait, try to listen so hard, fast, deeper to others, and to what you hear. When it comes to fretting your anger, please, I implore you, do it wisely.

It does not do you any favour when through your anger you show the ugly side of you by throwing furniture against each other, or slapping or attacking others with verbal abuses.

It is not difficult to change your way if you are in this categories. All you need to do is pray to God, ask the Holy Ghost to help you to change your character, your bad habit and give you the Christ-like character. God answers prayer and He is willing to do this for your if only you just pray.
