Week Five - Anger Must Fall
Reminder: Watch this video the week of Jun 10 - Jun 16

Do you have someone or some situation that you're harboring in anger? If so, you probably don't even have to give it much thought; as soon as you read this question, that person or circumstance came quickly to mind. Anger, whether it is suppressed and unexpressed, or simply expressed wrongly, is a dangerous and threatening giant. All types of anger are dangerous to you emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The giant of anger appears right in the midst of David's story we're studying; it's almost as if David has to face multiple giants, from both the enemy camp, and from within his own family ranks. You may painfully identify with David's experience. If so, take courage, this giant, like all the others, must fall!

Scripture of the Week

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
~ Romans 12:18 (NIV)

Discussion / Journaling Questions

We sincerely believe this six-week online study will encourage and refresh you in deep and meaningful ways as you discover fresh insights into God's provision for you in every battle you will face. Let us encourage you, after watching each weeks' video teaching segment (and reading the corollary readings in the book and study guide if you've purchased those); to review the discussion/journaling questions we provide below. If you're doing this study "solo", let these prompt you in your prayer time, as you journal, or simply to ponder during your study time. If you are in a group setting for this study (face-to-face with others, or via social media or online tools); you may wish to discuss these with others in your "group".

Questions to ponder, journal, or discuss with others enjoying this study with you:

  1. What do you think of when you hear the term "anger" (rage, temper, frustration, jealousy, etc)?
  2. Can you write down the name (or names) of groups or individuals that have wronged you in some way in the past; whose hurt has caused anger to rise in your heart?
  3. Read Ephesians 4:26. How can we "be angry, yet not sin" (the Message has a great rendering of this verse you may wish to read as well).
  4. Louie identified four different types of anger. Can you think of personal examples of each of these:
    1. WRONGLY FELT ANGER (angry about something that never happened or is not worthy of anger)
    2. RIGHTLY FELT ANGER THAT'S WRONGLY EXPRESSED (you have something to be angry about, but you're not handling it or expressing it properly)
    3. RIGHTLY FELT ANGER THAT IS NEVER EXPRESSED (also known a suppressed anger; a very dangerous thing!)
    4. RIGHTLY FELT ANGER THAT IS EXPRESSED PROPERLY (this is what we see in Jesus in driving moneychangers from the Temple)
  5. What is the difference between SINFUL anger and SINLESS anger?
  6. What led to the anger that Eliab had against his youngest brother David, that we see so "wrongly expressed" in 1 Samuel 17:28? (also see 1 Samuel 16:10-13) What caused the anger that King Saul later felt towards David? (see 1 Samuel 18:7)
  7. How does our focus on the cross of Christ, help us in resolving our anger, and seeing this giant fall in our lives?
