By David Paul Dorr:
All of us get angry. Anger is the emotional reaction that flows from the obstruction of our will. Just as we feel pain when you jam our toe against a wall, we feel anger when our will is obstructed. Anger is not a sin, but provides plenty of emotional fuel for temptation.
And that temptation is bitterness. Bitterness is the constipation of anger. Bitterness sits in our heart with no place to go and it saps our energy. But what is the source of bitterness?
