Anger may be justified, but “getting even” won’t make you feel better.

From Ephesians 4:26-27:  “Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not make room for the devil.”

Desmond Tutu (1931-2021) was a South African Anglican bishop and Christian theologian.  He was perhaps best known for his efforts as a human rights activist in dismantling his nation’s system of apartheid.

Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

From Romans 8:28:  “We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.”

Desmond Tutu’s Prayer

The right hand of God is writing in our land,

Writing with power and with love.

Our conflicts and our fears, or triumphs and our tears

Are recorded by the right hand of God.

The right hand of God is pointing in our land,

Pointing the way we must go.

So clouded is the way, so easily we stray,

But we’re guided by the right hand of God.

The right hand of God is striking in our land,

Striking out at envy, hate, and greed.

Our selfishness and lust, our pride and unjust

Are destroyed by the right hand of God.

Desmond Tutu is a South African Anglican cleric and Christian theologian.  He is well known for his social activism in his native country.  This excerpt comes from his book, AN AFRICAN PRAYER BOOK.
