Why Are We Angry?

11-20-17_anger.jpg

Everywhere we turn, people are being mean to one another. Sure, we have the “big” issues like mass shootings and so forth. Yeah, definitely anger at work. But even on a “smaller” scale, we see evidence of anger all around us. Road rage. Social media. Politics. You name it. Anger is a natural human emotion. Jesus expressed His anger at the money-changers in the temple. The Bible exhorts us not to “let the sun go down on your anger.” It’s what we do with angry feelings that’s important. But a deeper question to probe is why are we angry? There are so many irrational expressions of anger. For many people, it comes from life’s wounds, traumas and negative experiences. Let’s delve into this very important topic. Call in with your take on this, 1-800-585-9396.

Feeling Appreciated

11-15-17_appreciated

Oh, so true! People are quick to notice and point out when things are not getting done. But on the flip side, many great things are being accomplished on a daily basis that are routinely overlooked. Almost as though we expect those things to get done and there is little need for a thank you or a word of encouragement.  That is why so many folks feel unappreciated at work and at home.  It doesn’t matter how much they do, the result is still the same, no recognition for the effort that was made.  This all can lead to resentment, frustration, and anger.  Let’s talk about this from a Christian perspective and see if we can come to a greater understanding.  Call us at 1-800-585-9396.

Honor Your Father and Mother

11-14-17_older_parent.jpg

We are all familiar with the Commandment, honor your father and mother.  This is a directive from God.  But sometimes our parents expect way too much. They can be overly demanding even using guilt as a way to get you to respond and take care of their needs.  Some parents have a difficult time letting go of their children, falling into a type of co-dependency.  These situations can become frustrating and even destructive. So how do you find balance and peace with everything in your life, your spouse, your children, your work, and your parents.  Let’s talk about it.  Call in to 1-800-585-9396.

Like Father, Like Son or Daughter

Join Jerry and Debbie on Monday as they welcome back John Finch to the program. John is the producer of the documentary, “The Father Effect,” which aired on EWTN Television. John is a “survivor” of a lost fatherhood. His dad was absent and abusive, finally taking his own life. This led to a desperate search on John’s part to find himself, and to come to realize who he is in the eyes of his earthly and heavenly fathers. John has a new book on this subject, and will share his hard-earned insights on the show on Monday. Be sure to call in with your own experiences of how you have spent a lifetime “looking” for your dad.

Preaching the “Bad News”

In order for the “Good News” to be good, there has to be “bad news” that it is countering. At least that’s the case with the gospel. The gospel is the greatest news ever to be proclaimed. That’s precisely because it’s the answer to the really, really bad news. Yet it seems we live in a world that increasingly either denies or doesn’t realize that sin exists, and that it can potentially lead our souls to eternal damnation. For many people, there is no right or wrong. Just “your truth” and “my truth.” Until each individual personally recognizes that he or she is sinful and in need of a savior, the good news will not be effective in their lives. It’s like telling a medical patient that there is a cure for his or her ailment. No cure is needed unless there is the knowledge of the malady and how serious it is. So, what can we do to help a world that has lost almost any sense of sin rediscover the “bad news,” so that it will wholeheartedly embrace the “good news?” Share your take with Jerry and Debbie on Friday.
