Romans 12:18; Psalm 34:14; Galatians 5:22-23
- Just your hands
Everyone show me your hands. Now clap them together and hold them firmly. (Demonstrate this as you go along.) Now rub them back and forth. Faster! Faster!
(Have everyone keep rubbing their hands together until they start to heat up a lot.)
Do you feel your hands heating up? Do you know why they heat up like that? It’s because the friction between your hands. As you rub them together the friction generates heat.
This is what happens when two people are around each other. They start rubbing each other the wrong way. They start irritating each other and they get frustrated. As their frustrating and friction increases the heat builds up. Not the kind of heat that warms up your hands, but this heat comes out with anger or being a hot head.
If you are in a situation that causes friction with someone else you should try to bring peace instead of bringing anger. The Bible says in Matthew 5:9 that God blessed those that work for peace. Peace is also one of the fruits of the spirit.
Maybe you see two other people who are rubbing each other the wrong way. Being a peacemaker means that you step in and try to bring peace to the situation. Some people just sit back and don’t try to help, but God blesses you when you try to bring peace.

- Can of soda
The bible tells us in Ephesians 4:26 that when we get angry we need to be very careful not to sin. Sinning is when we do something that goes against God’s rules for our life like pushing, fighting, and saying unkind things.
Have you ever been really mad at someone?
(Take out can of soda.)
When we get angry it is like shaking this can of soda up. (Shake the can hard then act like you are going to open it.)
What would happen if I opened this can? It would explode everywhere!
(Set the can down and make sure you give it at least a minute or two before picking it up again. It would be best if you test this before presenting it.)
So if you were are all angry like this can and you sin by getting in a fight or calling someone bad names it would be like opening this can and it spraying everywhere!
Sometimes what we need to do it walk away and pray and ask God to help us to calm down and not respond in sin.
(Take the can and open it. It should open normally now. Make this dramatic so the kids think it will spray everywhere.)
See all this can needed was a few moments of quite and it calmed down and it could be opened without exploding. When we are angry we open need a few moment so that we can react without sinning.
