Our Lord Jesus Christ has put across a question before us and has provided answers to His question. He does not fail to tell you about the advantages and disadvantages of anything; it is for you to either take it or leave it. Nobody understands that Anger is the main problem; Anger causes all troubles. Death, lack, sickness, problem, difficulty, hatred, and other things emanate from anger and anger is the key, which unlocks the way for these calamities to befall you. It is just as if somebody would say the “chairman” of an occasion or the “president” of a club.
If you want to know the Chairman or President of all evil things, it is none other than anger. Once you are angry if you plant any crop, it will not have good yields; if you wish, you may experiment with this and if there is no care, the crop may not germinate at all but where it does, it will not bring forth good yields. If you go to the market with your articles while you are angry nobody will come around to ask what they cost, not even a fly will settle on it. When you are angry, somebody can stand by you talking but you will not hear and at such a point, you cannot even see well. If somebody greets you, you will not hear; and because you do not hear, you will think the person is cursing you and you will get angry instantly asking whether he is cursing you, whereas the person has only greeted you.
