Should we renounce anger?
There is a natural set of consequences for angry people. There is a backlash. Something very real is going to happen. We must guard ourselves and our hearts not to be an “angry person”. It is way too easy to start down that road. Finding our way back when we are lost is not easy. We don’t always have a compass and it gets very dark.
Let angry people endure the backlash of their own anger; if you try to make it better, you’ll only make it worse. | Proverbs 19:19 (The Message Bible)
Our mission, given to us by Jesus, is to love. That is it. That should be our day. That should be our motivation. Love should be our passionate focus.
“Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone… ‘If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this you will heap burning coals on his head.’ Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:17-18, 20-21)
Should we renounce anger? Jesus does not exhort us to get angry, as if anger were a good motivator or energy for positive action. (This is the kind of thing that many Psychologists and “pop psychologists” in in our culture today teach.)
Instead of getting angry at people Paul teaches us to,
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32).
