Some of you asked for this, it is a chapter from my book “Field Guide to Healthy Relationships”:
How to Deal with Anger
Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:1-2
The problems we face in life will often lay the groundwork for how we mature and deal with life. In the midst of these will be our response to our circumstances which can either erupt into anger or be smoothed over by love. It is all about how we choose to deal with problems. Thus, we need to be aware that problems are coming toward us right now. We are either in a problem, going though more than one problem, getting out of a problem just to be headed into another one. We have a choice of how to handle it and that choice will either benefit us and those around us, or tear everyone around us apart, leaving us helplessly hurt and destitute. The choice is ours; we can either be a destroyer or a builder!
