When people are angry....

It has been my pleasure to be in the counseling ministry for over 12 years so I've seen my share of difficulties that effect people; drugs, alcohol, pornography, narcissism, anger, spousal abuse, anxiety, stress and so many other issues. But I think the most sad person is that one who has no relationship with Christ.

When there is no personal relationship with Jesus, everything in that individual's life is exaggerated, blown out of proportion, and takes on a huge amount of drama. They make everything about them and how they have been hurt or offended.

When there is no personal relationship with Jesus, the individual begins to lash out at others. They take no responsibility or accountability for any of their own actions that brought them to this place of trauma. In fact, not only do they not take responsibility, they begin to blame and lash out at others. They lie, they gossip, they tear down, they try to ruin everyone around them. They refuse to recognize their sinfulness and refuse to hear the voice of a Savior.

It's sad, truly sad.

Proverbs 18:2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.

Proverbs 29:11. A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.

Proverbs 18:7. A fool's mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul.

Proverbs 15:7. The lips of the wise spread knowledge; not so the hearts of fools.
