Anger= The fruit of wanting our own way.
Why are you so angry?” the LORD asked Cain. “Why do you look so dejected? You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.” One day Cain suggested to his brother, “Let’s go out into the fields.” And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother, Abel, and killed him. Genesis 4:6-8
What were the consequences of Cain’s anger?
What are some of the consequences you deal with when your anger gets out of control?
Anger is a result, most of the time, by someone not getting their own way. This is why Jesus told us to serve others, as this is the solution to all anger, and the source of all joy. J=Jesus, O=Others, and Y= you. Yes I have fallen in the trap of wanting my way over the way of others, even thinking my way was better, even more Godly. HA To wash others feet wins others over quicker then to try to argue your position.
I like that definition of joy.
Thank you me too. 🙂
