We all know what anger is, and we’ve all felt it: whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage.

I have seen men of God that have lost their temper and become angry.  I have seen situations where the minister lost their temper at some staff member.  Usually when that person did not perform to the ministers expectations, or something went wrong while ministering or preparing to minister.  Later they would go back and apologize, but the damage had already been done.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control it can be destructive, it can lead to problems—problems in the ministry, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life.

What Should I Do If I Get Angry?

Don’t lose control if you get angry. Taking it out on others never solves anything. Instead, admit to yourself that you are angry and try to figure out why.

What can you do to keep the situation from happening again?

If something goes wrong with the sound system, remember things go wrong, maybe you need to get with the sound man before the service to make sure everything is working properly.  And still things can go wrong!

I’ve seen ministers get upset because a child starts acting up during his message and he reprimands them publicly, only to find that that family never comes back because of the embarrassment.

Find someone you can talk to when you have a problem with anger.   Once you talk about it, those bad feelings usually start to go away.

Never getting angry is impossible. Instead, remember that how you act when you’re angry can make the situation better or worse. Don’t let anger be the boss of you. Take charge of it!
