There is always a time and a place for righteous anger.
In our personal, day to day, lives when we see any form of injustice, it makes us mad inside. There are so many examples of injustice that we can’t count them. Some simple examples are when we see a bully beating up on a young kid, when we see a thief stealing an old woman’s purse, when we see a group of girls being catty and mean to another girl at recess, when a husband beats up his wife. The list goes on and on. The Lord God has wired us in such a way that most healthy human beings are angry inside when we see evil and injustice being done to someone.
This is called righteous anger. We are angry at evil and injustice, just as Jesus was angry that day in the temple when he saw all the injustices of people selling sacrifices at inflated prices.
