The Angry Christian Golfer

A young Christian man I used to golf with had trouble controlling his temper when he played. After a bad shot, he would often hurl his club down the fairway, sometimes throwing his driver farther than he had hit the ball. I learned to hit the ground immediately when I heard what sounded like a boomerang coming my way.

An older man who played with us finally had enough of this behavior. He said to the young man, “You are embarrassing me. A Christian shouldn’t act like that. The next time you throw your club when you’re playing with me, I’m going to quit and go home.” His threat worked; the young man began to control his temper.

2 Thessalonians 3:15-15 says, “If anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with him, in order that he may feel ashamed. Yet do not regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.”
