Numbers 11:24-30
Acts 2:1-4
John 7:37-39

As Moses had to learn (Numbers 11:10-13), being “filled with the Spirit” (Acts 2:4) requires us to give up our illusions of self-sufficiency and control. But as we do, we open ourselves to the help the Spirit longs to give.

Deuteronomy 30:15-20
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Matthew 5:21-26

Jesus warns that unrestrained anger makes one “liable to judgment” (Mt. 5:21). Unless such anger is examined, tested, and winnowed, it can destroy relationships and community. Thankfully, Jesus teaches us what to do when we’re “mad as hell.”
