What does Jesus say about anger? In our Gospel focus from the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:21-26), Jesus addresses the seriousness of anger and insults. The truth is that there is a place for anger, but it belongs to God, not us. "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord." Forgiveness, not anger, is ours. "Be reconciled," Jesus says to us. We are reconciled to God through the blood of Jesus and are now free to be reconciled to one another.
