Some ugly and great emotions have been given a name. This poem tells of Angry Andrew and Peaceful Pete.
Hope its message is clear. We do not need to nurture or entertain anger when we follow after Jesus.
Angry Andrew comes knocking at Peaceful Pete’s door
Peaceful Pete says I’m sorry I do not entertain you anymore
But Peaceful Pete must be careful for when he turns his back
Angry Andrew can easily slip through the cracks
He knows all about him, he has been burned by anger’s fire
But since he met Jesus and has His Spirit acquired
He has the ability in Jesus’ name
To conquer – the Living Water has put out the angry flames!
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
