What makes you angry?

Anger seems to be the top emotion these days. Road rage. Political ads.

Yet we too often miss the point and let anger cloud our judgements and behavior.

But anger has its place. It seems some of the current anger has been used in positive ways to affect what will hopefully be change in the way we treat people. Even “other” people.

Jesus got angry. We call it righteous anger and perhaps even use his anger to justify our own. But then, we’re missing the point.

People were using God’s word to sell sacrifices in the temple. They weren’t focusing on the covenant between God and God’s people. When people use God’s word to justify their behavior, they aren’t focusing on the covenant between God and God’s people.

That covenant is Jesus. That covenant is mercy. That covenant is grace. That covenant is love the Lord your God…and your neighbor as you are loved by God.

Tomorrow we discuss how Jesus offended people in high places and what that means for how we use our anger and how we live into our relationship with God. 9:00 or 10:30. We’ll be looking for you.

Grace be with you,

make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Appreciate it!

It's truly very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use
internet for that purpose, and get the most
recent news.

When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
