Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not make room for the devil.
Ephesians 4:26,27 (ESV)

Unresolved conflict can fester and give room for the devil to broaden fractures in relationship. It’s OK to be angry, but don’t let your anger cause you to make bad choices or fall into the enemy’s trap of division.

It is not an enemy who taunts me— I could bear that. It is not my foes who so arrogantly insult me— I could have hidden from them. Instead, it is you—my equal, my companion and close friend. What good fellowship we once enjoyed as we walked together to the house of God.
Psalm 55:12-14 (NLT)

More often than not, it is those closest to us who we have the ability to hurt and who have the ability to hurt us. So, be intentional in relationships, mend hurts and heal division.
