22 An angry man stirs up dissension, and a
hot-tempered one commits many sins.
I don't know if you read the article in the paper about
Donad and Jerry Berry, ages 30 and 29. Donald and Jerry Berry
lived in Dallas, TX and one winter night about two years ago
they had a quarrel. They got angry with each other. After a
quarrel, Jerry left the house. Don was a paraplegic and as he
sat in the house after this quarrel with his brother, he rolled
the wheelchair outside and when he got outside he
unintentionally locked the door behind him and found himself
locked out. He took his wheelchair and went down the ramp and
went around the back door to try to get in and began to try to
climb up the steps. They found him the next morning. He was
dead. The temperature had plunged to ten degrees and he froze
to death on his back steps. His brother Jerry had come in
later, came to the front door, found it was locked, apparently
thought his brother had locked him out and in anger sat at the
front door all night long. At the Parkland Hospital in Dallas,
TX, they amputated both of his hands because of frostbite.
Donald Berry is dead and Jerry Berry is now a handicapped
person without his hands because of a thing called anger.

about it and Jesus talked about it. Let's look at anger.
First of all, let's try to define anger ...
