Monday, January 7

Be wrathful, but do not sin.—Eph. 4:26.


Few people have been treated as badly as David was. Still, that friend of God did not allow resentment to gnaw away at him. Rather, he wrote: “Let go of anger and abandon rage; do not become upset and turn to doing evil.” (Ps. 37:8) The most important reason to “let go” of anger is to imitate Jehovah, who “has not dealt with us according to our sins.” (Ps. 103:10) But there are also practical benefits to ‘letting go’ of anger. Anger can cause such physical problems as high blood pressure and respiratory trouble. It can affect the liver and the pancreas, and it can cause digestive problems. When we are angry, we do not always think clearly. And at times a fit of anger may be followed by a prolonged period of depression. On the other hand, “a calm heart gives life to the body,” says the Bible. (Prov. 14:30) How, then, can we deal with hurt feelings and gain our brother? We can do so successfully by applying the Bible’s wise advice. w18.01 10 ¶14-15

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

This reminds me of a public talk the title is just let it go, given by brother mombo, in that talk he expressed this thought that Jehovah forgives in such a larger way not even to think about the errors we may have done in PS 103:10 the B party even expressed "Nor has he repaid us what our errors deserve" errors that we deserve to be repaid he forgives, we need to follow this example with our brothers and sisters we need to be just as forgiving as Jehovah is with us, doing so brings us closer to our extended family and closer to Jehovah.

I like today's text because it gives the thought of being free rather than having to deal with anger. Instead of using so much effort and force to keep anger in our grip, we can simply 'let go' and that effort can be used for something else. It just shows that Jehovah has the best advice for our wellbeing as well as our spirituality.
