  1. What about Pastor Tony’s teaching on anger caused you to reflect on your personal struggles with anger?

  2. Explain how/why anger is acceptable for a Christ-follower but when it crosses a “biblical line” becomes unacceptable to God. When does that happen for you?

  3. What role does self-control play in expressions of anger? How should we exercise self-control in heated situations?

  4. Would people in your Oikos say you are quick to respond in anger? (James 1:19) Why would our listening skills help us with anger?

  5. Why is it so helpful to resolve anger in a timely fashion? What are the steps to healthy anger resolution?

  6. What triggers your anger? How could Life Groups help us with our triggers?

Texts: Luke 13:1-9; Ecclesiastes, Matthew 5:45b 

  1. What should we say to our Oikos when they ask where our “good God” was in the midst of a tragic school shooting that took the lives of many children?

  2. At one point in the movie, The Patriot, Benjamin Martin passionately exclaims, “I have long feared that my sins would return to haunt me, and the cost would be more than I could bear.”  Were the tragic war events Martin’s family experienced, God’s wrath on him and his family for his earlier “sins”? How would you have responded to his statement?

  3. Have a conversation about John 3:17 and how it applies to Christ-followers’ response to tragedy and/or immorality in our culture.

  4. How do we, as followers of Christ, live self-reflective and humble lives that are truly repentant? What does it really mean to let our little lights shine?
