OUCH-Anger is Murder

Anger is an emotion we all deal with. However, Jesus said on the Sermon on the Mount, “Anger is murder!” So what does that mean? Does that mean if you are angry, you are a murderer?

Well, not exactly. What Jesus is saying is that when you hold on to your anger and allow it to turn into a grudge, THAT is the sin! Allowing your anger to control you can lead to a lot of heartache.

In this week’s lesson, the children learned that when you hold on to grudges and anger, it will do nothing more than hurt yourself. Instead of allowing your anger to make you bitter, you must forgive others, just like God has
forgiven you.
