What makes you angry?
What really ticks you off? Is it annoying people? Is the way some people drive? Or do you get angry when someone is late, or slow, or sarcastic? Do you live with an angry person? Are you that person?
Anger can destroy a family. Since the quarantine, domestic violence, verbal abuse, and explosive anger have threatened many families. Do you get angry and then feel guilty for how you treated your loved ones? Are you feeling threatened by the anger of someone else?
Jesus has an answer: Meekness. He said, “Blessed are the meek…” (Matthew 5:5).
We often think that meekness is weakness. But meekness is power under control. Jesus was meek (Matthew 11:29) and yet very powerful. Meekness is gentleness.
This Sunday, May 24, I continue a sermon series called Bless This Home from Jesus’ Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12). This week I will talk about “God Blesses the Gentle Home.”
You will discover how to bless your home with meekness by allowing Jesus to control your emotions. I know it’s hard, but if you will watch your angry words and open your eyes to opportunities to be gentle to others and do it, it will amaze you how fast God will turn your family from angry to gentle.
I hope you’ll join me this Sunday morning on Facebook Live or YouTube Live as I share a new perspective about anger and gentleness. Invite your friends to watch and allow me to tell them about Jesus. In addition, we will have a Drive-in service in our parking at 6:00 p.m. I will continue to share some of the blessings of gentleness.
Join me this Sunday @ 9:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. online or 6:00 p.m. in our parking lot.
