What makes you angry?

Anger seems to be the top emotion these days. Road rage. Political ads.

Yet we too often miss the point and let anger cloud our judgements and behavior.

But anger has its place. It seems some of the current anger has been used in positive ways to affect what will hopefully be change in the way we treat people. Even “other” people.

Jesus got angry. We call it righteous anger and perhaps even use his anger to justify our own. But then, we’re missing the point.

People were using God’s word to sell sacrifices in the temple. They weren’t focusing on the covenant between God and God’s people. When people use God’s word to justify their behavior, they aren’t focusing on the covenant between God and God’s people.

That covenant is Jesus. That covenant is mercy. That covenant is grace. That covenant is love the Lord your God…and your neighbor as you are loved by God.

Tomorrow we discuss how Jesus offended people in high places and what that means for how we use our anger and how we live into our relationship with God. 9:00 or 10:30. We’ll be looking for you.

Grace be with you,
