Blind spots are everywhere. When you’re driving a car, you’ve got blind spots. We’ve got blind spots when it comes to our character too. According to Rick Warren, one source of anger is frustration. So, it would follow that I am indeed often on the edge or verge of anger. I would argue that frustration is not anger, but it can easily tip over into anger. Another source is hurt. Are you hurting? Another source is fear. Are you afraid? Pastor Warren says these are “usually” the sources of anger.
Isaiah 26:3 New International Version (NIV)
3 You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
