I have written before about anger for it is the sin that so easily besets me. And because I am one of those people who wants to get to the root of my anger it takes a few days to come to terms with the roots I find.
The kicker is the surface ones are off shoots of the deep ones. A quick, I am sorry, sooths the surface ones for a while. This is exactly what the devil wants me to think. He will never want me to even see the deep roots.
As I think on the picture of roots of anger, I realize when the roots of ones life is angry the tree cannot be stable. It bothers me greatly to believe I am unstable, yet each outburst of anger makes it more clear.
Just the other day I had one of those outburst about the same thing I had a bout of the day before and the day before. They are coming more often because with each outburst my tree gets weaker. Again, the devils wants to destroy me and those around me too and he will use the roots to do that.
There are tons of information out there on how to deal with ones anger, lots of help from professional too. Also, there are tons of scriptures to help rid oneself of anger.
I gleamed this below from a commentary on angry.
