Proverbs and anger. The teaching of Proverbs on anger is no different than any of the other topics – these teachings are God’s deep desires for us. One way to summarize Proverbs teaching on anger is: Avoid the destructive force of excess anger; pursue being slow to become angry. In Christ, you are absolutely more than your excessive responses or unhealthy repressed responses to injustices in our broken worlds. Being angry isn’t a sin! How we deal with it, where we let it go makes all the difference.
