When is it okay to be angry?

John 2:15-16[Jesus] drove out the sheep and cattle, scattered the money changers’ coins . . . and . . . told them, “Get these things out of here. Stop turning my Father’s house into a marketplace!”

Numbers 25:11“Phinehas . . . has turned my anger away from the Israelites by being as zealous among them as I was.”

Anger at sin is not only appropriate but also necessary. It is a sign that our priorities are in line with God’s, that we understand the destructive force of sin, and will confront it with the same passion that God does.
