Fits of Rage

Fits of Rage

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God………………………..Galatians 5:19-21 NIV

This morning I want us to reflect on ‘fits of rage.’

Have you ever gotten so angry that you started shouting, pointing, and saying things that you later regretted?

Well, that would be called ‘fits of rage.’

If this is you, try taking 10 deep breaths before you respond; and then PRAY!

We need to practice temperance and patience so we do not let our emotions control us.

We don’t want to be blocked from the kingdom because of ‘fits of rage.’

  1. We all probably have had one of ‘those’ fits at some time or other! Like your words to count to ten and pray. I’d add -count and pray some more!
