Because of Calvary,
“A little boy got into a fight with his brother, and the whole experience left him feeling bitter. When his brother wanted to make things right, he refused to listen, In fact, he would not speak to his brother all day.
“Bedtime came, and their mother said to the boy, ‘Don’t you think you should forgive your brother before you go to sleep? Remember, the Bible says, “Do not let the sun go down on your wrath”’ (Ephesians 4:26). The boy looked perplexed. He thought for a few minutes and then blurted out, ‘But how can I keep the sun from going down?’” [Richard De Haan in A Story Is Told: Inspiring Stories and Illustrations from Our Daily Bread compiled by Dave Branon, (Grand Rapids: Discovery House, 2010), p. 9]
Anger is deadly. It kills the mind, the soul and the body.” [James L. Schaller, The Search for Lost Fathering, (Grand Rapids: Fleming H. Revell, 1995), p. 146]
