There are plenty of wrong ways to be angry. We all know that. What we may not know is that there is a right way to be angry, and it is Biblical.
Anger that is righteous is properly motivated. It must also be properly focused and directed against the deed and not the doer of the deed.
1 Peter 2:9 KJV says, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.”
Did you hear that? YOU are a peculiar person! The word peculiar is not always how society thinks of it, as equivalent to “weird.” Peculiar means distinguished in nature, unlike others.
When we learn the right ways to be angry, we learn how to become peculiar, which is what God wants. As Titus 2:4 says, “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” God didn’t save us merely from sin, but from iniquity, or narcissism.
