Anger is one of the emotions humans display. It is part of being human. We know that when Jesus walked the earth, He became angry too. Because we also know that He was God’s Son, we know His anger was righteous anger.
Furthermore, the Bible teaches us that we can be angry but that we should not sin in our anger. We should also pray for one another, as the word of the Lord tells us.
If we have sinned against others, especially in our anger, we should ask for forgiveness but also forgive others who are angry at us.
Remember what His Word says in Matthew 6:14-15, “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
