Anger

You cannot truly love someone without getting angry with what is hurting them. Failure to get angry with what is hurting them is an indication you do not really love them. You only love them because of your "need for them to be nice to you."

For many of us, we get angry for all the wrong reasons. We get angry when we get called "names", have to do something we don't want to do, can't get what we wanted to get, respond to someone who "offends us," etc.  

For  many of us, we do not get angry for the reasons we should get angry. We tolerate people being "spoilt," learning bad manners, being taught incorrect "things," etc. 

Of yourself you cannot love others sufficiently so that you would get angry with what is hurting them. You have to first receive an understanding into how much you have been loved.  Once you receive an understanding that you have been loved, not because of what you can do or make God feel, but because He would prefer to cease to exist than not have a future with you, you will begin to be able to love others in a similar way. You will begin to be able to help others, even if this means they may no longer think you are "their  friend" 



 John 2: 14-17  In the temple courts He found men selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and money changers seated at their tables. 15So He made a whip out of cords and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle. He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16To those selling doves He said, “Get these out of here! How dare you turn My Father’s house into a marketplace!”

17His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for Your house will consume Me.
