Some time or another we have all had to fight anger. Even so the apostle Paul. He writes to the Ephesians: “Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger” (Ephesians 4:26). God, who has made us to have feelings, has also given us the ability to control them. In this story we offer some guidelines about anger.
I’ve written some instructions, four easy steps to remember, but steps that we will have to practice over and over. Every time we get angry we must review the steps.
