But it’s really amazing, because we live in the age of rage. We live in a seething society, a very angry culture. Just drive on the freeway. Just go to a soccer game. Pull into Fellowship Church parking lot! We have a lot of anger.
Anger, though, is not the primary emotion. It is about anger; it’s not about anger. And over the next few sessions I’m going to talk about the importance of anger in relationships. Did you hear that? Anger is the key to deeper intimacy in marriage.
All these people are running around saying, “Man, I want meet somebody and when we hook up and get married, we’ll never have any fights. It’ll always be peaceful and it’ll be like Valentine’s Day every day.” Yeah, right!
We’re gong to discover how important anger is. Anger is an indicator in your life and mine that we need to change. You show me your anger and I’ll show you your passion. You show me your anger and I’ll show you your purpose for living. Anger is a good thing. It’s your friend and mine.
What happens when someone explodes on you? How do you deal with an angry person in your home? At the office? On the team? Around the neighborhood? How do you deal with that? We’re going to talk about that. How do you confront someone who’s angry? We’re going to talk about that too. So this is going to be an exciting series, a life changing experience. It’s been my prayer that we get a true angle on anger.
Today, we’re going to put our floaties on and sort of splash around in the shallow end. But it’s critical that we understand some of the principles and precepts I’m going to talk about today, because every session builds upon the next.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young
