While God’s anger is always driven by love, our anger is nearly always driven by selfish desire. Anger shows up in our lives in all sorts of ways when our personal needs and ambitions are blocked: through passive aggression, through active attacks, or through a slow nursing of bitterness. This kind of anger is deadly because it separates us from God and separates us from each other. Through Jesus Christ, God seeks to heal our anger and make it his kind of anger, an anger driven by love.
