Day 4 Moses (Anger)

Read it: Exodus 32:19-20 & Hebrews 11:24-28
Live it:

How do you balance the two passages of Scripture we read today? On the one hand, Moses is portrayed as burning with anger. On the other, he appears as the paragon of faith and obedience. The truth of the matter is that he was both.

Sometimes, well-meaning teachers try to tell us it is sinful to be angry. It is true that anger can and often does lead us to sinful behaviors. The emotion of anger, in itself, is not sinful.

As an example, Jesus became angry with what was taking place in the temple overturned the tables of the merchants, and drove them out of the temple. That was an act of righteousness that resulted from the emotion of anger.

Along with today’s reading, look at Ephesians 4:26–27: “And don’t sin by letting anger control you.” “Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil”.

Don’t let anger control you. Keeping anger under your control makes it possible for you to balance anger and walking faithfully as a servant of Christ.

Ps. Rod
