Ben and Lynley chat with Aaron and Allison Harvie about their relationship with anger and bitterness in the Glass House. Ministry leaders all deal with this in varying forms, wonder where God is when things get painful and we get frustrated with people. We hope listening to the Mandrells and Harvies process anger and how God has walked along side them through it will be helpful.

“God was building endurance and character in us through these difficult situations. Even though I was throwing a temper tantrum, and I was in a really bad place, God was there with me.”
“As a church planter, I held my emotions on my sleeve. Being measured by by someone else’s standards can generate a lot of comparison and anger.”
“I had anger in my heart towards particular people and I didn’t really know where to turn. Then I heard a sermon by RT Kendall that convicted me. At least with the Glass House, the doors can be locked up, but with bitterness, every door is left open.”
“If I’m feeling something is off between myself and another person I often say to them, ‘Can I check an assumption?’ Checking an assumption is an escape hatch for holding in the resentment we feel towards a person because of the way they are behaving or responding to us.”
