Anger brings many feelings and therefore has many powers. Anger brings feelings of resentment, hatred, loneliness, sadness, and so mad negative feelings. Anger has the power to destroy and once destroyed, you can't put it back together any time soon. It takes a very long time to build trust and friendship back.
Anger succeeds in destroying relationships, friendships, and families. Anger succeeds in bringing one to hatred for other people and even towards God in certain circumstances. Anger succeeds in bring pleasure to the devil. Anger causes one to speak before thinking about the permanent damage it can bring to one's heart. The Bible is clear about anger. We are to be slow to anger and quick to listen. We are not to let the sun to go down on our anger.
Be careful about what you say. Words can be used to destroy or to build. Words can stab one in the heart. Think before you speak or you may lose someone you love or do something you will deeply regret later and for the rest of your life.

What does an adult worry about? Being able to provide for his/her family, losing their job, having enough money, when they will die, how they will die ,who they will marry, and many more things. But that's the key word... things. Things r temporary. God talked about worry. What exactly does the bible say about worry, and how can we live our lives in peace?
The bible tells us that not one of us can lengthen or shorten our days. Not one of us can change the future. The bible says to b anxious for nothing and to trust that God has everything under control. There is no reason why we need to worry about what we can't control. We aren't God. But how do we live our lives in peace?
The bible also talks about how we can live our lives. He refers to children in this matter. He stated that unless we become like a little child we cannot see the kingdom. A child worries about nothing but instead, lives his/her life one day at a time with no fear for their future. Unless we become as a child nd have the faith as a child, we will not b able to live our lives in peace but only in worry.
Today, I challenge you to become as a child. Have the faith of a child. Do not worry about tomorrow but have faith and trust that God has your life in control. He knows the beginning from the end.
