When my sister and myself were in grade school there was a stray cat that we found on our porch in the morning. When we finished our day at school and came home the cat was still on our porch. We pleaded with our parents to let us keep the cat that so desperately wanted to come in to our home and they eventually gave in. Did you know that in the Bible anger is presented as a means to bring something into your life that so desires to be a part of it. In the book of Ephesians, “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil.” You need to be careful because being angry and not dealing with it can invite something into your life that can reveal itself in resentment, self-righteousness, bitterness, misery and vengeance. Anger can invite in a pet that trust me you do not want.
