“…anyone who is angry with a brother will answer for it before the court…” (Mt 5:22)
God takes care of our relations.
Being “angry with a brother” could be the sign of my own vision for him. And my own expectations. It could be also a sign of injustice, but so often is a source of future vengeance (or a plan for it).
My brother, even weak and sinful, is God’s child and deserves respect, and always, especially when in need, needs my prayer.
Anger is not a solution. Rather a call for patience, calm and compassion.
“Be good to your servant, that I may live and keep your words. Open my eyes, that I may consider the wonders of your law.” (Ps 119, 17-18)
