In part 5 of the “How to Be Good and Angry” seminar, Paul Tripp talks about what happens if you fail to acknowledge that anger is something that lives inside of you, not outside of you. He said that if you fail to acknowledge this:
- You will personalize what is not personal.
- You will turn God-given moments of ministry into moments of anger.
- You will be adversarial in your response.
- You will settle for quick situational solutions that don’t get to the heart of what is really going on (such as breaking off relationship, moving locations, giving condemnation, slandering the person, manipulating to get someone in your favor).
