Tonight in Bible class, we read Galatians 5:19-21.
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
What I want you to see is this: “fits of anger”. This is a Christian dad’s blog, meaning I have kids, two of them, 5 years and 3 years. I know that all of you parents out there have had a few (by few I mean thousands) fits of anger, but God’s word lumps those of us with the occasional short fuse with idol worshipers and sorcerers and the like, and look and that last bit again, “will not inherit the kingdom of God”! Yikes! I know what I’ll be working on in the coming weeks.
