If the Devil Sends You Flowers

From Blog12
If the devil sends you flowers,
You can know it's not for love.

He may tenderly caress you,
Show you wonders to impress you,
Tell you all the ways he'll bless you--
Make you richer and fulfill you--,
But when push comes down to shove,
Then his shiny fangs will kill you.

If the devil sends you flowers,
You can know it's not for love.


Be angry and do not sin;
do not let the sun go down on your anger,
and give no opportunity to the devil.

(Ephesians 4:26-27 ESV)

Anger is one of the ways Satan gains control of our thoughts. Allowing that anger to fester and grow gives Satan more control of our attitudes and thoughts.

When he tells you how justified your anger is, you better realize he's trying to gain influence.
