Anger is an issue in many homes. It may come out as “frustration,” gestures and facial expressions, sighing, yelling, or harsh words. We may call it many things, but at the base of it, we are sinning in our anger. Anger itself is not sin, but acting out inappropriately or in a hurtful way most definitely is.
Teaching our children to handle feelings of anger and frustration in a biblical way is an important part of our job as parents. Learning that same self-control for ourselves is just as critical. The Anger vs. Self-Control Unit Study is a result of much prayer, study, and application in our own home. It is is also the first in a new series of products here on Proverbial Homemaker called God’s Little Characters!
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. – 2 Timothy 3:16-17
