“If one is patient in a moment of anger,
one would escape a hundred days of sorrow.”
“Anger of the mind is poison to the soul.”
“When a man is wrong and won’t admit it,
he always gets angry.”
There are severe consequences and ramifications if we let our self-control
run rampant; so we need to learn how to control the emotions of the flesh,
the weakness in every soul. Anger is detrimental to our emotional and
spiritual well-being and do remember that anger is a friendly “sister”
trait to the Devil. If we let anger simmer inside of us every time that
we’re being provoked, intimidated, wrongly rebuked or accused or
even rightly reprimanded due to our own faults; and stop to think
rationally for a moment before we fly off the handle to fight back for
the sake of perceived rightful justification, we are bound to overstep
into boundaries of no return and be on the precipice of doing something
that we’ll regret for a lifetime. So, cut off the wrong and bad attitudes
of pride, anger and rebellion and not let it take root for the Devil is
always waiting on the sidelines for opportunities and moves in
for the kill to plot our downfall and thus when we are so dispirited
with our failures in life, we’ll start to lose our faith in God.
Anger nullifies all the humility and love that personifies us as a loving
child of God.
“When you are caught in the heavy rains of anger,
open the umbrella of mind, take refuge under the
roof of reason!”
Do not turn into “HULK” all the time,
it doesn’t pay …in the end.
The price is too high for our loss of self-control; whatever situation we
find ourselves in, from bad habits to anger to lust to envy to fear and not
forgetting arrogance and pride, we should have a gauge to measure our
self-control always and it’s got to be kept at bay and checked because our
Almighty True God JEHOVAH in the heavens above is never pleased
with that and we’ll definitely be admonished and pruned in a manner
worthy in God’s eyes.

Morality may consist solely in the courage of making a choice and choices
made are acted upon the *free will* given by God above. Free will means God
does not force our conscience not our actions on any decision that we make.
Free will allows one to choose between being righteous and doing what is right
or being wicked and doing what is evil in the eyes of Almighty Jehovah God.
In life, there’s always two choices or two roads, righteous or evil which leads
to good or bad ramifications. This is the freedom of free will.
Choosing the one that is easy and smooth but wicked, no back breaking
effort to attain whatever your heart desires; a shortcut to everything
which is much much easier than virtue itself, will only bring one reward
and that is, the easy way, with no substance or anything of glory to shout
about and maybe even have to do time behind bars chained with irons of
sorrow and a lifetime full of regrets.
The other of good but harder road with it’s winding twist, bends and turns
will inevitably reward with the right results because this path taken is walked
with righteousness and peace with right thoughts and actions and the blessings
it brings, will be satisfying, self-gratifying and worthy of the Lord God Almighty.
You’ll have to face the consequences of your own acts and if your actions are
right and pure in God’s eyes and also that in your fellow man’s eyes, you’ll reap
good consequences; if not, you’ll suffer and sorrow terribly for it. Though, for
some, punishment may not be immediate but it follows on in your life and in
the lives of your son/sons and later generations to come. They’ll have to pay
the penalty for your sins.
It’s in the wise sayings of King Solomon, “You’ll reap what you sow.”
It’s the unchangeable laws of nature.
Sooner or later everyone sits down to their own banquet of consequences.
In other words, you can choose what you want to do, but you can’t choose
the consequences for your choices! So, act wisely and carefully, because
you are ultimately accountable to Jehovah God and also to Jesus Christ
in the end. You will reap what you sow into your life, whether you sow bad
and evil seeds or good and fruitful seeds. To each his or her own.
Henceforth, good trees will bear fruitful productive fruits while bad trees
yield rotten bad fruits; and so shall a man be defined by what flows out
from his heart through his words and thoughts.
To surmise this in brevity :
It’s the nature of life, you can never lose anything that really belongs
to you, because it’s what God has accounted and measured out to you
according to the seeds you sow; and you cannot keep whatever that
which belongs rightfully to someone else.
