Do not be angry with your brother

When we get angry with a brother, we may even offend him. In the case of a brother who offends us, what should we do? We must call him with a spirit, humility and meekness.

You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’

Matthew 5:21

To introduce the topic of anger, Jesus mentions that in antiquity anyone who committed murder would be guilty of judgment. But later it teaches us that we can bring judgment without actually committing homicide:

But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell

Matthew 5:22

Let’s not act like the ungodly, who only looks for ways to offend their brothers and seek every day to hurt all those around them. That is why it is good that we do not offend our brothers, and if we see that from them come words that are not pleasant before God, let’s find a way to correct their form of expression, with love, and humility.

    DO NOT BE ANGRY WITH YOUR BROTHER

    I will be glad and rejoice in you: I will sing praise to your name, O you most High. Psalm 9:2

    The Lord God, who is Love, will not be pleased nor accept our praise if we are angry with our brother.

    On occasions somebody or some brother in the faith considers himself wise in his own opinion, intending others to recognize him, he acts without meekness, foolishly, then we must not say him: you fool! nor feel antipathy against him.
    We must think the Lord praises humble people and humiliates boastful people. It is not allowed for us to be angry with him.

    If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men. Romans 12:8

    Before we want to praise the Lord, we must be reconciled to others, show them our love. “Be you angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down en your wrath” Ephesians 4:26

    It is good for our soul to be in peace with all people, so we shall be glad and rejoice in praising the Lord, and He will accept our praise and a thanksgiving with love.

    The Lord Jesus says that before we offer a gift to God… “ first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”
    Matthew 5:24.

    Another thing is that when we pray to the Lord, He is not pleased with us saying a lot of words and repeating them every day in the same way, as religious people do.

    “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise”.
    Psalm 51:17

    The children of God need to know the Word of God, and practice it, so the Lord God will listen to our prayers.

    Waiting for His Will in Jesus’s name.
