“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’  But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the judgment.”  Matthew 5:21-22

Week 3 in our latest series at The Well, God's Ethics: Realigning Your Moral Compass and this week's topic is a MUST LISTEN for every single person (and I don't say that often).

The topic is anger and where it comes from and how we should deal with it.  But realize that when Jesus speaks about anger, He isn't speaking only about losing your temper and going crazy.  He's speaking about anger of the heart... the kind of anger that we often justify and excuse... bitterness, resentment, grudges, hatred.

Trust me, there isn't a person out there who isn't struggling with this kind of anger in some way and until we learn to deal with it, we are doing nothing except enslaving ourselves to a life of misery.

Letting Go of Your Past (video)

"I cannot REALIZE my future if I'm still REACTING to my past."

Ever tried to drive a car looking exclusively in the rear view mirror?  Think you'd be able to get very far that way?  I'd say that your chances of crashing are significantly higher than your chances of success.  Right?

Well, that's how many of us are living today - especially when it comes to relationships with friends, family and loved ones.  We think we moving forward but the truth is that we're just dragging the past with us.  And it is SABOTAGING THE MOST IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIPS IN OUR LIVES!

That's why today's message at The Well is a must-listen.  Listen to it prayerfully and with an open heart and God just might open your eyes to something that you've never seen before.

Crazymakers Part 2 - WHO'S PUSHING YOUR BUTTONS?

How do you respond to anger?  Are you a Machine Gun?  A Mute?  A Martyr?  Or a Manipulator? That was the topic of yesterday's message.  It was Part 2 of the Crazymakers series, titled "Who's Pushing Your Buttons?"  In it, we looked at some of the different ways that we usually respond when angry and then saw four Biblical principles of how God wants us to handle anger.

An important message for all.  Why?  Because whether you realize it or not, you do have a problem with anger and you might be the only one who doesn't see it.  Just because you don't explode (those are the Machine Guns), doesn't mean that you don't have an anger problem.  It just means that your problem is hidden and that makes it even more dangerous.
