I intend to spend this day with all the curiosity and imagination that God gave me.
I intend today to be aware of ANGER. I will notice when anger wells up in me. How long does it last? Do I act on that anger? Is the anger in defense of someone else? When do I see anger in other people? How do I react to that? Is there ever a time when anger can be helpful? Can I be helpful to a friend who is angry – can listening without judgement help? Can I use the energy created by anger to do some good?
I intend to spend this day with God.
James 1:19-20 (NRSV)
You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness.
I intend to share my joy.
How will I share this day?
Volunteer with an organization working to change something that makes me angry?
Make a list of things that make me angry and share with a close friend?
Research ways to control my anger?
Share on Facebook?
