Psalm 146:5-10
1 Timothy 6:17-19
Luke 16:19-31

In his parable of the Rich Man in Hell (Luke 16:19-31), Jesus challenges conventional views of hell. Yes, hell is an expression of God’s passion for justice, especially for the poor, but is hell forever? Or does God’s grace in Jesus Christ mean there is hope, even in hell?

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.”
