This week our new message series entitled, “Building Relationships” continues. We’re talking about how to strengthen our good relationships, how to heal our bad ones and how to deal with the people in our lives that really push our buttons.
We all have people in our lives that irritate us. How do you deal with those people? Most of the time, if you do what you naturally feel like doing in a relationship it’s almost always the wrong thing!
Many times we provoke people to do the very behavior we don’t want. They react in the exact opposite way of what we hoped. This often results in anger. This week we will look at the topic of “Diffusing Your Anger.”
Have you ever been amazed at how quickly some of the people in your life can flip you from being happy to being angry? That’s often because they know how to push your buttons.
The truth is, if we are going to build healthy relationships, we have got to learn how to deal with anger. Proverbs 25:28 (GNT) says,
“If you cannot control your anger, you are as helpless as a city without walls, open to attack.”
Join us for this helpful message on how to deal with your own anger and not get angry back.
