Anger- Peace

Jesus was angry and rightly so. His anger was justified, just as it was when he drove the money lenders from the temple. I have been angry, I’m not sure if it was justified - I doubt that it achieved much. Thomas a Kempis has this for us to reflect on - “Keep yourself at peace then you will be able to make others peaceful” Is this advice worth following? Or you might prefer that of St Francis, “Lord make me an instrument of your peace”
