Sinful Roots In The Heart



Anger occurs when our desires (whether unrighteous desires or righteous desires) have not been  met.  The loss of those desires causes  a grievous displeasure that can be manifested in various ways.  Although anger can be righteous (Eph. 4:26), we most often have and thus display unrighteous  anger.  Unrighteous anger is usually  accompanied by pride and  selfishness. Contrary to anger  are meekness, self-control,  peace, and patience. 

ANGER in the heart says things such as: "I have a bad attitude." "I am not getting what I want." "I am bummed, grumpy, irritated, disappointed, or frustrated."
