Understanding Anger (What the Bible Says)

What does the Bible have to say about anger?

When we’re talking about the Biblical application, or understanding of what anger is, we’re talking about what’s happening in the heart. Early philosophers and scientists, like Aristotle, believed the heart was the place to find the human soul, and the Bible, in some ways, supports this.

The Bible has a lot to say about anger, and as a Christian first, and someone with degrees in Psychology and Counseling second, I choose to look at science through the lens of scripture. In today’s episode we’re going to define the following things:

  • What IS “righteous anger,” and can we really use it as an excuse?
  • Why does the Bible say we experience anger?
  • What does anger achieve for us? Are we getting what we want?
  • Where does anger come from?
  • What should a believer do when they’re experiencing sinful anger?

Tune in now, and discover what the Bible has to say about what happens in our hearts (and what we can do to overcome)!

Today’s show is brought to you by our newest Prayer GuidePraying God’s Word for Your Angry Child, by Tricia Goyer. As parents, we want the best for our children. We can read books, attend therapy sessions, and try different techniques. Ultimately, we are still determining what we can do. However, when we pray for our children, we ask God to intervene. We acknowledge that we cannot fix everything independently and surrender our children to God’s care.

Praying for your angry child doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming, it just has to be done.

With biblical teaching on anger, scripture-inspired prayers, and space to journal using our Think, Pray, Praise method of daily prayer, this digital prayer guide is perfect for the busy mom who needs God to move in the hearts of her kids. Learn more here.
