Mark 3:5-6 (NLT)
5 He looked around at them angrily and was deeply saddened by their hard hearts. Then he said to the man, �Hold out your hand.� So the man held out his hand, and it was restored! 6 At once the Pharisees went away and met with the supporters of Herod to plot how to kill Jesus.
Jesus had gone into the synagogue on the Sabbath, the holy day of the week. Jesus noticed a man who needed his hand healed. Knowing it was the Sabbath Jesus was waiting for the religious leaders to attack Him for performing works. Jesus turned to his critics and asked, �Does the law permit good deeds on the Sabbath, or is it a day for doing evil? Is this a day to save life or to destroy it?� But they wouldn�t answer him. Jesus became angry and sad that those who were suppose to help others would deny good acts even on a day meant to worship God.
Jesus was fully God and fully man. Jesus had all the emotions each of us carry. In these verses we find Jesus was angry towards the religious leaders for their strict rules, which placed burdens and hardships on people. Yet even in anger Jesus points out the truth without allowing the anger to overtake Him. He asked questions and waited on answers, but never once was His words driven by sin. Many of us experience anger in our lives. Anger is an emotion God gave us to recognize when injustices are being committed. Righteous anger allows us to speak out for the good of others. Paul wrote, �Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.� King Solomon said, �Control your temper, for anger labels you a fool.� So anger has its place, but it is something to keep in check so that it does not result in sin. Pray God would show you the difference between righteous anger and anger which is provoked by our own flesh.
