Ephesians 4:26

"Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath,
When others try to claim an authority they do not have and tell me what to do or make demands it easily aggravates me, but rather than addressing it as I should I usually just do my best to shove it from my thoughts. However, I need to deal with it. I need to take my thoughts captive to God and, when the occasion calls for it and at the right time, take it to them calmly and with love so that there will be peace between us, even in the depths of my heart where I might otherwise bury the anger and taint my soul in trying to put it out of my mind.
