Jeremiah 31-32 B

“Behold, I will gather them from all the countries to which I drove them in my anger and my wrath and in great indignation. I will bring them back to this place, and I will make them dwell in safety. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.”

Something I easily forget is that God’s anger is holy. Ours…isn’t. It’s usually rooted in fear, or pride, and revolves around us getting our own way. Even when our fists are shaking in righteous anger, we mishandle it expose our sinfulness.

What does it look like to display holy anger? Is it possible for us?

How do we exercise discipline out of a desire to sanctify, and not to reach for revenge?

Anger is a God-given emotion, and yet we rarely see it displayed in a godly and healthy way.

What are your thoughts on this?
