    gotquestions.org has quite an extensive write up on this topic

    Basically, those things which anger God (i.e. sin) are appropriate for
    us to be angry about, as long as our anger does not cause us to sin.

    I think when Jesus chased out the money changers that's a good point of reference.
    Give me a new voice
    Give me a heart for repentance and make it stay
    Cause I've idolized my words
    It's all my fault
    But it's comfortable

    The bible says to be angry and do not sin.... it also says do not fret because it only leads to evil... and that anger resides in the bosom of fools (those are from scripture...Im just too tired to look them up right now)

    ”Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” -James 1:19-20

    The Bible tells us, in several places, essentially that we should try not to be angry. But we are also told, as has been posted here already, to “be angry, and do not sin”. So the Lord knows we Will feel anger, but He tells us how to do so.

    My Bible has a devotional reading to go along with the verse I used; it explains- “Anger is energy released to defend something, and therefore, it is not intrinsically wrong. Jesus, for example, gets justifiably angry at injustice and abuse. There is, however, an anger that is sinful. It is rooted in pride. This more common kind of anger flares up quickly, leads us to do things we regret, and comes from our need to defend our own self-image.”

    So can we be “righteously angry”? I’m not sure that we can, in our flesh. Our anger certainly doesn’t work in the same way as the Lord’s. Can we sometimes be Justifiably angry at the same things Jesus was angry about? I think so- because when we are born again, we are then in Christ, as he is in us; therefore our spirits are grieved, burdened, and yes, angry, about the same injustices, the same abuse, the same wrongdoing that angers the Lord.

    Matthew 5:22

    22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

    Just resolve your issues before you retire for the day.

    Eph. 4:24-27: "And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil." 44.gif

    Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
    to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
