ANGER
Pr. 14:17/Ecc. 7:9/Isa. 57:20,21

First it was a cat that went flying through the air from the fifth floor of an apartment building in New York City. When it landed none of its nine lives could save it. Then it was a dog that also went flying through the air from the same window. It also died when it hit the pavement.

"The next one to fly will be one of you," said Jessica Sanchez, mother of three children.

Jessica was a sick, frustrated woman, plagued by many problems. One day while her husband, Thomas, slept, she did carry out her threat. She threw her two-year-old daughter out the window to the same inevitable end.

What causes such intense anger? Jessica Sanchez had accumulated for many years a frustration she could not overcome. The tiny apartment, her husband's very limited salary, the unbearable heat with no air conditioning, and the continual badgering of her three children was more than she could handle. She simply lost control of herself.

When anger overtakes us it drowns out reason. A person can lose control of their faculties. The ancient Greeks used to say: "Anger is a brief moment of insanity." Unfortunately, though it is brief, it can be a long enough time, as in Jessica's case, to commit murder.

Anger is one of the natural passions of the human soul. Man has the right to use it to hate evil in all its forms. However, to not control that anger and just let it have its way whenever we feel it, is like putting a poisonous snake in a child's play yard. No good will ever come from it.

Regarding anger Jesus said: "You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment." (Matthew 5:21-22)

Can anyone help us control our pent-up emotions? Yes, Jesus Christ can. His power, when we invoke it, can clear our hearts and ease our frustrations. We do have to want to change, but with Christ in our hearts we have His strength to face our problems. Let us always be conscious of His desire to help us. If we ask Him, He will help us.

Pray today for 92.7 FM in Los Alamos, Chile. Our program can be heard on this secular station on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. These listeners need the Lord.
