Through James, the Lord teaches us about anger and the danger associated with this emotion. While in itself, anger is not sinful (God can be angry), in man who has a sinful nature and even in believers who have indwelling sin, it does not acheive God’s righteousness and and easily leads us to sin. For these reasons James warns us to be cautious about our anger. We learn how to distinguish righteous anger from that which is sinful and we are encouraged to examine ourselves to see if our own anger is truly righteous or not.
