I really do not want to write this post! Anger is a very difficult emotion to deal with. And most of us know that anger is not something to hold on to. It’ll make you sick, literally. It’ll eat up all your energy. Though there may be a VERY good reason to BE angry, Jesus has shown us what to do with it. FORGIVE.
But what if you have been abused, if there was cruelty involved. And I am not talking about something in the past, what about now? Someone has treated you in a way that was extremely hurtful and it is costing you time, effort and energy to heal from it. It was unfair. It was unjust.
And then Jesus says: Forgive anyway.
I think we are not naturally wired to let go of anger. And this morning I am wondering if Jesus says: Love! Love this person. Reach out to this person. Make the first step. Keep reaching. And maybe that is the only way to process this anger and be freed from it.
