15 Bible Verses About Anger Management—Help You Control Your Temper

Proverbs 29:22 - Anger Management Bible Verses

Bible Verses About Anger Management

Many times, we can’t help going mad when we have a conflict with others, or meet with something unpleasant, or feel annoyed … We know that anger isn’t in line with God’s will, but we are still riled up when something bad happens.

As a matter of fact, we are across about something just for defending our own interests, not for defending the justice to satisfy God. Thus, when others damage our self-esteem or our interests are threatened, we easily lose our temper … So, before anger, we may think about that what’s the reason for getting angry and the consequence of anger, then we can keep our temper. Also, we can pray to God and seek His help and guidance, and gradually we will control our temper.

Truth Quotes:

“Regardless of whether one becomes angry in the sight of others or behind their backs, everyone has a different intention and purpose. Perhaps they are building up their prestige, or maybe they are defending their own interests, maintaining their image or keeping face. Some exercise restraint in their anger, while others are more rash and flare up with rage whenever they wish without the least bit of restraint. In short, man’s anger derives from his corrupt disposition. No matter what its purpose, it is of the flesh and of nature; it has nothing to do with justice or injustice because nothing in man’s nature and substance corresponds to the truth.”

from “God Himself, the Unique II”
