Anger is not a Sin, but action Motivated by anger can be Sinful

Genesis 4:7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it”

Anger should be the energy behind good action, not evil action.

Despite parent’s efforts and worries, conflict between siblings is inevitable their relationship is a mixture of loving and fighting and often you can hear the parents say, “they fight all the time I just hope that they don’t kill one another.”

I want to tell you a story of two brothers name Cain and Abel, Cain got angry, furious, both him and his brother had made a sacrifice to God. Cain’s sacrifice was rejected by God, and we see from Cain’s reactions that his attitude was wrong from the start. Cain could have corrected his attitude but instead he took his anger out on his brother Abel.

His decision is a clear reminder of how often we are aware of opposite choices, yet we choose the wrong just as Cain did. We may not be choosing to murder, but we are still intentionally choosing what we shouldn’t. Asking God for help can prevent us from setting into motions actions that we will later regret.

  • The lesson we see and should learn is what we offer to God must be from the heart, giving Him the best we have.
  • When disappointed don’t react in your anger, but chose to do good other wise the consequences of sin may last a lifetime.
