Excerpt from tween devotional Winners and Losers on the topic of anger:
Anger is all around us. Anger is that strong expression of displeasure that, uncontrolled, can explode into physical or verbal demonstrations of rage. Most times, explosions of anger are harmful. Here’s why.
We lash out in anger when we’re frustrated because we’ve been denied something we want. Joyce wanted the highest grade. Dave wanted that double. Or anger springs up when someone or something interferes with the controls we want on our lives. Cindy hadn’t planned on spending thirty extra minutes untangling her necklaces and chains. And her privacy had been violated too.
Anger is also a defense or excuse when we’ve failed to take an honest look at our own abilities. Dave considered himself a good hitter. But some days he just couldn’t hit as well. This may have been one of those days. Dave also may have honestly believed that he missed the tag at second base. It’s easy to get angry when we think we see, or we’re the victims of, injustice.
