Good Stuff!

On Becoming Christlike! Have you ever thought about the Savior having all emotions? From love and compassion to disappointment and even anger???? Well, he did!! You can see it and read about it in the scriptures. The main difference was this, His anger was deliberate, controlled and sure. (Look at the money changers in the temple)
Usually anger is out of control, without the Spirit. Which is usually where the natural man gets hung up!
Look at Joseph Smith, even he had a moment where he expressed this in Liberty Jail! It was controlled and deliberate!
Now, don't get me wrong, we aren't given permission to always get angry. But there will be times we must express it, as the Savior did, to stop an evil thing from happening.
I just love the gospel and believe it is just plain "Good Stuff"!
