Roots of Anger
Anger is a secondary emotion. The question, then, is what’s underneath it?
Proverbs 29:22 says, “A man of wrath stirs up strife, and one given to anger causes much transgression.” If you’ve got a temper, you’ve got problems. In general, people get angry because they are hurt, frustrated, or sad. Maybe they're going through a loss and screaming at the world. Or they feel unimportant to someone they love and the hurt comes out as anger. Or they are frustrated. Whatever it is, to keep your anger from causing sin, deal with the hurt, frustration, or sadness underneath.
