Anger Inventory: James 4:6-10
November 1, 2022 | Tracy Troxel
James 4 helps us to understand what causes our anger and also how to deal with our anger in a biblical manner. Think about the last time you were angry and work through these four questions as you inventory your anger.
- What were the circumstances that led to your anger?
- What did you do and say when you were angry?
- What desire (or anti-desire) was blocked that formed the heart of your anger?
- What desire, if it had been ruling your heart, would have helped lessen your anger?
This kind of self-reflection can help you become a person that is slower to anger. We are often more vulnerable to anger when we experience trials. After reflecting, remember to take James 4:6-10 and work through these verses and apply them to your disordered heart.
