Part of the Deadly Sins; Life Giving Savior series, preached at a Sunday Morning service


Proverbs 12:16 (Listen)

16   The vexation of a fool is known at once,
    but the prudent ignores an insult.


Proverbs 14:29 (Listen)

29   Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,
    but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.


Proverbs 22:24–25 (Listen)

24   Make no friendship with a man given to anger,
    nor go with a wrathful man,
25   lest you learn his ways
    and entangle yourself in a snare.


Proverbs 29:11 (Listen)

11   A fool gives full vent to his spirit,
    but a wise man quietly holds it back.


Ephesians 4:26–27 (Listen)

26 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and give no opportunity to the devil.


Ephesians 4:31 (Listen)

31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.


Colossians 3:5–8 (Listen)

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.


Romans 12:17–21 (Listen)

17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


1 John 4:10 (Listen)

10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.


Matthew 5:21–26 (Listen)

21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. 23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison. 26 Truly, I say to you, you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.
