There are times when we as people tend to get frustrated or even angry. At these times it can truly test our ability to have the desired Christ like attitude with others around us. There were even times when Christ himself became angry.
What were some times you can remember reading about Christ becoming angry and or saying harsh words? Why did Christ get angry and was it wrong for him to do so?
When have been times you have lost control of your temper or words?
When have you been the fence and collected scars because of someone else words or actions?
Read James 3:1-12
Do these scriptures justify our harsh words to others (I just can’t help it)? If not what is the purpose of pointing it out?
How can you reconcile situations in which your words have hurt someone else? Do you do those things? Why or why not?
How can gentleness and patience help with controlling anger and harsh words?
