The Late Great Ingrate

… the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. James 1:20

Angry people -sow chaos. Insatiable persons thrive on endless complaints. A deprived family finds comfort in hostility and competition. A warring tribe traffics in death.

Righteousness ( greatness) cannot be these two

  1. getting the things we want or need
  2. giving in love

But they had a wanton craving in the wilderness, and put God to the test in the desert; he gave them what they asked, but sent a wasting disease among them. Psalms 106:14-16

A lost race – a saviour awaits

If on the Sabbath a man receives circumcision, so that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me because on the Sabbath I made a man’s whole body well? John 7:23

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15
