Anger is Its Own Reward

“A man of great anger will bear the penalty, for if you rescue him, you will only have to do it again.” (Pr 19:19)

You can save someone from a lot of things, but their own anger is not one of them.  Don’t enable angry people.  If someone gets away with throwing a temper tantrum because everyone around guards their ego and allows their fits, the only lesson they learn is that anger gets them what they want.

Angry people need to bear the consequences of their own outrage, so they can grow.  We don’t endure tantrums from children, and we shouldn’t from adults either.  Let the angry man fail… the sooner he learns, the better.

And if you happen to be an angry person yourself – note: nobody can control your anger but you.  It isn’t an external problem – it is an internal one.

“for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness that God requires.” (James 1:20)
