Weekend Devo — Going to Bed Angry?

IStock_000002904078XSmall “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. — Ephesians 4:26-27

A friend told me about this particular verse being the topic of discussion on a Christian radio station. It peaked my interest for sure, because this is something my husband and I have been very intentional about throughout our 24 years of marriage. 

We don't go to bed angry.

This works for the most part, but occasionally there will be an issue that can't be solved in one discussion. Those are the times we agree to return to the subject when we have a better solution, but even then, the anger is disappated and we are back to that "we" mentality.

Sometimes that's not easy, but I do believe this has helped our marriage immenseley. Anger has a nasty way of festering in the mind and heart, especially overnight. I don't know why but obviously God does, or I don't think He would have been so specific with this Scripture. 

What do you think? Do you make a point of resolving conflict before going to bed? Or at least agree to disagree?

Praying and believing,

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.
