The Lord began to speak to me this morning around the subject of anger.
He led me to 1 Samuel 18 and the relationship between King Saul and David.

I read an interesting observation by Neil. T Anderson from his book 'The Daily Discipler', it reads; 'People who are secure in Christ are less prone to anger, because their identity and sense of self worth are found in Christ, not in the success or failure of others, not in the positive or negative circumstances of life'. (p244)

I wonder whether our anger at times - is birthed out of a need to defend who we are. Whereas if we know and are secure in who we are in Christ, we're free from the weight of negative and ill directed emotion and free to address the facts.

Just a thought.
