Theology Thursday

Anger.  It's a topic in our household.  Recently, I've been reading a blog series about anger at Femina.  It's been very thought-provoking and helpful, reminding me to think about the reasons behind some of the issues which flame our anger.  There's been several important and large topics touched upon in this series: anger/justice, the source of anger, forgiveness.
I am thankful that, as we struggle through anger popping up in various situations, we can remember that because of His great plan for salvation through Jesus, God forgives us freely, totally, lavishly.

John 3:16-17
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.

How do you see the connection between anger and forgiveness? anger and justice?  our daily struggle with difficult things (both inside and outside of us) and Jesus?  How best do you self-reflect to understand whether your anger is justified?...ok, there's tons more questions but these are a few to get started.  I'm interested in your feedback.
