Anger Versus Love

James 1:19

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak,slow to anger;

This is the command of God to His people.

To me.

Anger never produced the righteousness that God desires, the kind of life I’m called to live. That isn’t the point of anger. I can get angry at injustice, at sin, at the devil.

But I dare not think anger at other people will do good, will cause change, will produce righteousness.

Only God can do that. And God will do that through love. His love for me. And through my love for others – friend and enemy.
