Do we keep one of these?
With an effort to keep silent during the “angry” moments, some tends to keep the resentment up to their hearts and mind and remember it for a long time.
The lack of opportunity to have the anger blurted out sometimes resulted to accumulating little angers and complain planted in the heart like little plants…and for some who tried to be very kind to others but forgot to be kind to themselves....they could almost have a plantation of anger in their hearts..it could be called an “Angerville”. (Taken from the idea of the word Farmville used in Facebook).
Keeping an "Angerville" is not a good idea. It might result to some damaging action that could not only affect ourselves but other people too. Too much anger could lead to lying, gossiping, back-fighting and an aim to destroy than correct. According to King Solomon,
We would not want to end up being a fool. It is best to try talking to the person we are angry with when we are already calm and have the ability to control our emotions. Explain to the person what causes the anger and give the other person some space to explain its side. We can try to have an open mind and come up with an amicable solution and most of all FORGIVE.
If possible, let our anger be diminishing like an alcohol that evaporates than setting it aside and keeping it till it grows...like an "Angerville".
Let us pray…
Our Heavenly Father. grant us enough patience and understanding so as not to let ourselves be taken away by anger by creating a scene or keeping it until we became destructive. Always give us a chance to clear our resentments and learn to accept reasoning. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Anger is not a good tool to keep.
