Day 18 - The Anger Effect
Mar 23 17
Have you ever been hurt by someone? If not, you are a rare creature! Most of us have been hurt plenty of times by others. And I think one of the most common ways of dealing with that hurt is anger.
Some people will hold on to a grudge, with feelings of resentment causing a foul taste in your mouth at the mere mention of that person's name. Others will lash out at that person letting their anger be known. Some will just quietly go on about their lives without ever mentioning it, all the while the anger is eating them up inside.
The same is true for our man Job. In today's reading from chapter 18 his friend Bildad is challenging him once again and he says:
"You who tear yourself in your anger— shall the earth be neglected on your account or the rock be moved out of its place?" — JOB 18:4
Such powerful imagery in this one line!
