James 1:20 ” Man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life.”

Our anger is never neutral…it’s either sinful or righteous. In fact in Ephesians 4:26 it warns us, “In your anger do not sin.” Thus we need to look to God’s righteous anger as an example to follow. Godly anger is one of grace… not violent, unbridled fury, full of verbal abuse and disruptive behaviors. God’s anger is always working to right wrongs…it’s full of justice and mercy. Righteous anger can motivate us to right wrongs, to speak out against injustice, oppression, or when God’s Name is blasphemed. While sinful anger is destructive, judgmental, always makes things worse, and is ruled by the selfish desires of our heart. When you become angry, ask yourself this question? “Would this make God angry? If the answer is no, your anger is distracting you from God’s work. If yes, then respond in the right manner…fighting evil in a way that would glorify God.
