Remember growing up playing the game of Hide and Seek? Inevitably it was always most enjoyable when you got to hide. Unfortunately, many of us have never grown out of hiding, except now we do it in plain site. Why are we so afraid to be seen? Why do we care so much about what people think about us? Today we are going to tackle these questions, through the principles and lessons from the Word of God.
Have you ever been angry at someone, or something? Have you ever reacted in the wrong way when you are angry? If we are all honest, I think we all have at one time or another. Anger itself is an emotion that we all will or have experienced. In fact, God has been angered. We read of stories like Noah in genesis chapter 5, and God’s anger towards wickedness. We read in Matthew chapter 23 Jesus angered by the hypocrisy of the pharisees. Often, we view anger as an emotion that we should try to avoid- or a sin. But anger itself is not the problem, it’s what we do with our anger that determines if we sin, or not.
