Leadership Devos of the Week – Romans 12:18-20 – Sixth Week of Lent

WRATH/RAGE – “Do not take revenge…but leave room for God’s wrath…”  Wrath/rage is inordinate and uncontrolled feelings usually expressed in violence and self-destructive behavior.  Anger drives the imagination and the body toward the goal of “getting back” at someone.  Rage moves 180 degrees from forgiveness.  It hardens our heart because rejecting grace and mercy for others, always ends up rejecting the grace and mercy we need as well.  What do I need to let go of?  – Jesus, you have not dealt with me in anger; guide me to offer grace to others as I have freely received it. Amen.
