Ephesians 4:26-5:2 Reading the Passage

How to Handle Anger – Ephesians 4:26-5:2

4 (26) Be angry, but do not sin. Do not let the sun set on your anger; (27) do not give a place to the devil. (28) He who has been stealing must no longer steal; rather, let him labor, doing honorable work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with the one who is in need. (29) Do not let any unwholesome word come out of your mouth, but only what is good for edification as there is need, so that your speech may give grace to those who listen. (30) Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (31) Get rid of all bitterness and rage and anger and clamor and slander, along with all malice. (32) Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other just as God by Christ forgave you. 5 Therefore, become imitators of God, as beloved children, (2) and walk in love, just as Christ also loved us and gave himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God that was a pleasing fragrance to him.
