Anger Management on the Golf Course

Is there anything more manly in life
than hitting a golf ball? Think about it. Spending time outside.
Exercising the body. Focusing the mind. All while maintaining complete control
over your emotions. (tap) Ahhhhh! Most of the time. (crash) Hey guys, Robbie Sondag here with little manly advice for living an authentic life. While the bible doesn’t say a word about golf, it
does contain several passages that describe how people sometimes react when life doesn’t go their way. Sounds like golf to me. Colossians 3:8 says, “But now you must rid yourself of all such things as these:
anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Ever see someone respond with those actions? Sounds like a couple guys in a bar fight. Or maybe you see a little of yourself in that description, as well. How do you
react when life’s challenges come your way? With anger? Do you go into a rage and make excuses? Or blame others? Do you seek revenge with malice? Or perhaps you slander others or respond with cursing. While this verse applies to everyone, it
sure seems like it was written with a man in mind. Getting mad, stomping around, seeking revenge, blaming others. Can’t relate to any of that stuff, can we?
Sounds like the actions of a four-year-old. But as Christ followers we
need to grow up and rise beyond that kind of behavior. The rest of Colossians
goes on to encourage us to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness,
humility, gentleness, and patience. It talks about things like forgiveness,
love, and gratitude. Doesn’t take a golf pro to see the benefit of that advice. So
yes there is something more manly in life and hitting a golf ball. It’s
learning to respond to life’s challenges in a God-honoring manner instead of the
childish ways that leave collateral damage, which almost always comes back to haunt us. Hey I miscalculated. You can actually still
win this if you sink this putt. What?! You’re kidding? Where’s my putter, my putter, my . . . Oh. . . Better give me my 7-iron.
