Trapped—Part 6
We all feel trapped at times. Trapped by circumstances. Trapped by fear or unforgiveness. Trapped by the sins in our lives. Trapped by finances. Trapped in a relationship. Is it possible to be set free from the things that hold you captive? Join us for the compelling and relatable series. Let’s discover how to experience the freedom Christ intended you to have.

Trapped [Part 6]—Tim Haring

Problem: We are sometimes trapped in anger, bitterness and unforgiveness.
Solution: We need to keep anger in its place.
Anger: emotional excitement induced by intense displeasure.
–Merriam-Webster Dictionary
…to enrage, incense, infuriate, ire, mad, madden, steam up, annoy, irk, vex; aggravate, exasperate, irritate, nettle, provoke, boil, boil over, bristle, burn, flare (up), fume, rage, seethe, to breathe fire, fly into a rage, get hot under the collar, get one’s blood (or dander) up, hit the ceiling, lose one’s temper, see red.
“Anyone can be angry, that is easy…but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way…that is not easy.” –Aristotle
Righteous anger is commanded, not merely permitted. –Vincent
