Is it Okay to Be Angry Sometimes?

Dear Reader,

Yes, it is okay to be angry sometimes, because Paul said in Ephesians 4:26, “Be angry, and do not sin, do not let the sun go down on your wrath.”  The Bible also says in Psalm 7:11, “God is a just judge,” and “is angry with the wicked everyday.” We know that God is righteous and cannot sin, so if He is angry, it is not wrong.  However, in Galatians 5:23 Paul said that self-control is part of the fruit of the Spirit. When we are angry, we must practice self-control.  Anger is not sinful, but it can cause us to sin if we are not careful.
