Positive Resolve Of Anger

CrutchFreeWe cannot deny we are angry and hurt when someone wounds us; and a desire for revenge is normal, maybe even justifiable.  But neither denial or justifiable revenge is positive resolve of anger.  For example: a husband with a roving eye continually wounds his wife.  She can deny her anger and it will affect her own mind and body eventually.   Or she can feel anything from an inadequate failure to pure rage, (and her feelings are understandable and justifiable).  Forgiveness will probably be the last thing on her mind.  WHY shouldn’t she hurt him in return?  Because His SIN would then CRIPPLE her!  Sin reveals a problem in the sinner – not in those he sins against. Why make His problem her problem?  Whatever other choices she must make in her individual situation, she can ultimately choose to forgive her husband and be released from the cycle of grief and pain.
