Angry people aren’t very fun & rage is a goofy stage

When anger burns like fire and blows like a hurricane, a country is in trouble. Angry people aren’t very fun.

America’s experiencing nature’s furry in fires and storms and human rage from the White House to the streets. We need to disengage rage, before it’s too late! (Look at the past. People who rode rage, always crashed.)

To effectively communicate, take the shout out of your voice and disengage from rage. After all, rage is a goofy stage ( as a platform for speaking and/or a phase of life). If we turn the page on rage and engage each other with love and compassion, we can heal.

Taking offense lets your destructive emotions out of their fence. Best forgive. Rage is a cage that locks down the heart of the person who carries it. When you get mad at people, you acknowledge their ability to manipulate you.

Loathing is a heavy load, both for the loather and the lothees. Loathing is ugly clothing, but a smile is always in style. Loathing easily leaps into violence, but love likes to lead toward peace.

It’s sad that many people choose to be mad about what they don’t like, instead of glad about what they do. If you stay mad, you’ll stay sad. If you show love, you’ll rise above it like a dove. To get mad at someone for disagreeing with your opinion is arrogance.

Anger makes the human mind think irrationally. Volleys of anger kill the jollies of life. Cease fire! Escalate kindness to de-escalate conflict.

Anger creates tension. Widespread anger creates widespread tension. Peace please. To avoid getting mad, refuse to allow people’s words to make you mad. Instead of getting mad, try being merely miffed. Then you won’t wreck a relationship.

Anger turns conversation into conflict. It changes discussion into discord. We need love and kindness to lead our way. See: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
