A Time to Get Angry - 3rd Sunday of Lent

March 4, 2018

Is there some evil in the world that a voice within you keeps saying, “Somebody ought to do something about that?” Maybe that’s the voice of God. Maybe it’s time you went beyond anger to getting involved in solving some of the world’s problems. If it was good enough for Jesus, surely you and I are not too good to get up in arms from time to time about evils that are still occurring in our world. Of course, we are not to get angry over petty things. But there are some things that should make us angry--when the weak are trampled upon, when children are abused, when the poor are taken advantage of and the homeless are neglected. Maybe the greater sin that you and I commit is not getting angry often enough, angry over some of the injustices that still exist in this world.
