Resolving Anger, The Proverbs Series: Driving Out the Mocker (Prvbs 22:10)

January 4, 2010   •  Posted in: 

Proverbs 22:10 — “Drive out the mocker, and out goes strife; quarrels and insults are ended.”

Did you know that you have a “mocker” inside your head? This is that negative voice you’ve read about that puts you down and devalues you. This voice is fueled by all the false, destructive, and unkind things said against you and things done to you. When this voice says you are not lovable, it mocks the truth of God’s love for you.

For you to get over your anger and begin to have an authentic, healthy relationship with yourself, you must drive this mocker out. When you do, out goes strife, internal quarrels, and self-inflicted insults. You declare peace with yourself and gain the clarity you need to resolve other relationships in your life.
