He who is not angry when he has cause to be, sins. (John Chrysostom, 4th century Church Father)

We read a lot today about road rage and other incidents of excessive anger. It has invaded our political scene and just about every other phase of life. So, Chrysostom’s comment might seem a little strange to us in the 21st century. But there is such a thing as righteous anger. When we fail to respond strongly to evil, we unwittingly give it license to continue.

But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger (Romans 2:8).
