Using the narratives of Scripture is a great way to teach biblical truth. These stories reveal the common circumstances that we all find ourselves in. I have created, and am making available for your use, an anger worksheet geared toward a counseling session with a young person: older elementary to teen-age years. It is a worksheet based on the reading and study of Genesis 4:1-15.
If you desire the worksheet in another format, please comment below or email me: pastormarkkelly (at) gmail.com
Sample Questions from the worksheet:
- Read Genesis 4:1-15. List 4 reasons why Cain became angry. Study who he is and why he might have responded the way he did.
- Identify at least 3 motives Cain may have had to kill his brother, Abel.
- Describe in at least 2 sentences how Cain’s emotions affected him physically.
- List at least two ways that Cain responded when confronted with his sin.
- What are the similarities between Cain and yourself that you and your parents have identified?
- (I have the parents work through the worksheet with the child)
- Read Proverbs 16:32. Memorize this verse with your parents and be prepared to quote it at our next appointment.
