Weekly news from WCUMC 7-17-2016

  1. 1. Weekly News from WCUMC- 7/17/2016 “Kingdom Living” A Series on the Sermon on the Mount “Jesus – Are you saying "Anger is the same as Murder?” Matthew 5:21-26 Jesus teaches us that ANGER is the pathway to destruction, damnation, and hell Matthew 5:21-22 21 “You have heard that it was said to those who lived long ago, Don’t commit murder, and all who commit murder will be in danger of judgment. 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with their brother or sister will be in danger of judgment. If they say to their brother or sister, ‘You idiot,’ they will be in danger of being condemned by the governing council. And if they say, ‘You fool,’ they will be in danger of fiery hell.

First make things right with your brother or sister and then come back and offer your gift. 25 Be sure to make friends quickly with your opponents while you are with them on the way to court. Otherwise, they will haul you before the judge, the judge will turn you over to the officer of the court, and you will be thrown into prison. 26 I say to you in all seriousness that you won’t get out of there until you’ve paid the very last penny. The greatest impediments to the Kingdom of God are most often not attacks from the outside but the conflicts among us on the inside. For Personal and Group Reflection 1. Do you harbor an angry spirit just under the surface of things? How is that affecting you and your relationships with others? 2. Anger is a normal human emotion. It’s what we do with it that turns it into danger. What might be a way you can interrupt the inner turn toward nursing the anger and see that moved in another direction? 3. Are there relationships in your life right now that are in a state of conflict? Are there people who have something against you? What would it take to go to those people and try to make
