James 1:19, "My dearly loved brothers, understand this: Everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger", is a verse many of us have heard in one form or another. But it is verse 20 that completes the thought and explains why we should be slow to anger.
Our anger does not accomplish God's righteousness, and if it doesn't accomplish that, what, if anything, does it accomplish? Oh, how I wish I had the answer. Maybe it would help me be even slower to anger.
