Anger.  God never said that we would not experience this emotion.  But his word commands, "In your anger, do not sin."  And therein lies a problem in our world.  We experience anger as part of our humanity.  But so often, in our anger we do sin.  And then we seek to justify our anger by placing blame.  We blame our boss.  We blame our children.  We blame our spouse.  We blame the church.  We blame our past.  And in so doing, we remain in a childish prison where - rather than taking responsibility for who we are - we blame circumstances for making us angry, and then respond to these circumstances out of our anger.
