I READ: Genesis 4:1-16.

Because Abel’s offering was accepted by the Lord, Cain, his older brother, became jealous and angry. When his anger was at its peak, the devil entered into his life and caused him to kill his own brother. As a result, Cain was punished by God. From this story, we can learn that if we do not control our own emotions, it can lead us to committing a sin and we need to swallow the bitter consequence of it. The Word of God stated that the devil is always roaming and is always ready to devour its prey. The devil will use many ways to make us emotional. The purpose is to get us to commit a sin. That is why we need to always be aware and ask the Holy Spirit to remind us whenever we fail to control our emotions and anger. We need to learn to be individuals who are patient and slow to speak.

I DECLARE: Proverbs 16:32: He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

I DO: What action will I take today after meditating on the Word of God?

I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
