Something is wrong in our society, when unsaved people must teach saved people how to control their tempers,
managed stress and deal with grief. This is due to spiritual immaturity and not having God in our life in totality. God said
he would make us the head, and not the tail(Deut.28:13)
David picked out five smooth stones from the brook(1 Sam. 17:40). Anger is just one emotion. There are other
emotions such as hatred, undiscipline, contentious, rash, grumpy, frustrated,pride, etc.
We must understand that Emotions whether it be anger or one of the above has a trigger(Cause) and
a connection(effect). That takes patience to deal with your triggers, and wisdom to deal with the effects.
There are five things the devil cannot do. This is where the believers strength lies: the devil cannot live
holy,the devil cannot be humble, the devil cannot be obedient, the devil cannot tell the truth, the devil cannot love.These
are the Five Smooth Stones of Emotional Management(Anger Management):
