Attitudes – Clamour

Clamour is demanding, shouting, or being overly forceful.

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: (Eph 4:31 KJV)

Clamour is included with wrath, anger, and evil speaking. In children this is seen as a temper tantrum. When children don’t get their way they often perform an outcry by yelling, screaming, shouting, crying, and even throw themselves to the floor.

Many adults yell and throw a temper tantrum to get their way. They are being stubborn and drawing attention to themselves; often disrupting the service or making their friends and families suffer. Clamour causes uneasiness and anger. Clamour is a sign of immaturity.

We should strive to be mature adults and mature Christians. We should keep a watch on our actions and reactions to see if we throw tantrums. We should recognize this type of behavior and put it far from us. Instead of being clamourous, we should be peaceful and joyful. Others will see the difference in our lives and we will be in a better position to be the light and Bible that others see and read.
