What is Truly Meant by Controlling Your Anger?

The key to controlling your anger is not taking charge of it like you would a child, or an employee, or a car. Once you lose your temper, you are no longer in control. Controlling your anger means you find a way to control when and why you get angry. Anger is not necessarily wrong, so being in control isn't the ability to suppress your anger, but deciding what you should get angry about.

The Difference Between Jealousy, Covetousness, and Envy

What is the difference between jealousy, covetousness, and envy? The Bible says that we are not to covet (Exodus 20:7; Psalms 119:36), but God is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5; Deuteronomy 4:24).
