All of us face forces that seek to knock us off the track of following Jesus. Anger is one of those forces. Have you suffered serious mistreatment or just run-of-the-mill snubbing? Either way, the result is often anger. Now what? Psalm 137 is the Spirit's answer. Some parts of it are hard to take, among the hardest to take in the whole Bible. But they're in the Bible, so we won't run from them. Today we ask God to teach us what to do with our anger; but more than that, to fill us with gratitude for what he has done to satisfy his justice over every mistreatment.
