Anger is a normal, healthy reaction to certain situations of attack, shame, and frustration, but we always have a choice in the way they express their angry feelings—either destructively or constructively. This study can be helpful to both extremes and may lead to much discussion. Ask yourself the following: To begin to think about anger as an emotion, try to bring to mind one incident in the last two weeks that has made you really angry. It could be something in your personal life or something in the news. And answer the following questions: 1. What made you angry? 2. How did you feel? 3. How did you deal with your anger?

“God made me and God don’t make no junk!” This slogan found its way to T-shirts several years ago. It may not be grammatically correct, but it’s true, nonetheless. Paul tells us in this verse that we are God’s “workmanship.” We are made by His hands. We are not “accidents.” We are works of art, crafted by His loving hands. Therefore, we have value. Nothing can take that away from us. Ugly words, insults, snide remarks…they are meaningless in the face of the fact that we are His workmanship. If we could only truly believe that about ourselves, there wouldn’t be a bully anywhere with any kind of power over us.

Father, Help me see myself as your workmanship, crafted on purpose with love by You. I am not less than. I am not worthless. I am a work of art that You chose to create and that makes me special. Amen.
