Anger is a relationship-fracturing phenomenon that happens too often between individuals. The angry heart desires something from someone who does not provide it or is not responding quickly enough. Because their desire is not finding satiation, the craving soul begins to manipulate the other person with anger. I’m speaking of sinful anger, of course. It is as though they are saying, “I will only be content if you meet this need.” In nearly all these cases, the short-tempered person has too many needs.
