Just How Righteous is Our Anger?

My last post was about dealing with loneliness. For some people, like me, loneliness can be accompanied by anger. And at times I think my anger is justified. Just like that Tenth Avenue North song, Losing:
I can't believe what she said
I can't believe what he did
Don't they know it's wrong?
Maybe there's something I missed
But how could they treat me like this?
It's wearing out my heart

Then I came across this article today. I am reminded that this life I live is not my own. As eager as I am to get to heaven to escape the hurts of this world and be with the Maker of every good thing, God has me here for a purpose. Part of fulfilling that purpose is to forgive and to sacrificially love. 

The One and Only God Who fulfills my every need (especially emotional and spiritual) endured every kind of hurt to love me and be with me, while I am still yet a sinner

I strongly encourage you to read that article, because at some point or another everyone is tempted to fall into unrighteous anger.
