Living in the Dash: Rock #1 that Holds Us Down-Anger

We come face-to-face with anger as often as any other feeling. And yet, anger is one of the most misunderstood and distorted of all human emotions. We all get angry, but do we really understand what anger is? This past Sunday, we tackled this subject head-on to not only learn where anger originates, but how to handle it. We learned there are two types of anger: sinful anger and justified anger.

Sinful anger is when our anger causes us to sin. Justified or righteous anger (or what I like to call righteous indignation) are things that anger us that also anger the heart of God. One kind of anger is good, one is wrong. We have to learn that when we deal with anger God’s way, it can actually help us discover a fulfilling life--a life that is lived in the "dash."

This next Sunday, we're going to look at the Rock of Envy. I hope to see you all there.
