When talking with friends, pastors, teachers, etc., the general interpretation is that Jesus, by his own words and lifestyle, was a pretty peaceful guy. His continual references to peace in relationships, peacemaking, and love for your neighbor stand as evidence for this belief. With the exception of one instance, Jesus rarely displays anger or disgust – though he continually comments on the inequities of the religious system, he seems for the most part to hold to a “gentle” stance in all that he did.
If all of our emotions are given by God, what place does anger have in the in scope of our relationship with Him, and our relationship with others?
Is anger ever ‘right’, and in what instances/issues is anger justified, if ever?
Give me some feedback…
