Angry words, O let them never

-A A +A
By Greg Dumas

The story is told regarding one of Leonardo da Vinci’s great paintings which was completed on the wall of a chapel in Milan, Italy. Known to us as The Last Supper, it is beloved throughout the world. When Leonardo was working on the face of Jesus in that painting, he became very angry with a certain co-worker and lost his temper, lashing out at him with bitter words and threats. After his tantrum subsided, returning to the wall, he attempted to continue the work but found himself unable to do so, being so emotionally distraught. Thus, he lay down his brushes and searched for the man to beg his forgiveness. He found that man, who accepted his apology, and da Vinci returned to his workshop and finished painting the face of Jesus.

The Bible has a lot to teach us about anger.

“Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth,” Psalm 37:8-9.
