If you are having trouble controlling your own anger, greed or jealousy, seeking for God and his will in your life will help you to overcome; if you are troubled by any of these negative emotions in others, living in the Spirit will help you apply the fruits of the Spirit as a defense against those who would infect you by their unspiritual attitudes. The best response to any of these harmful attitudes is love, goodness, and positive, merciful ministry. Prayer also is a powerful response which keeps us close to God when dealing with unpleasant emotion.
