We can comprehend what Pastor Ed Young Jr is saying about anger being a gift from God. When you think about it the subject of anger being mentioned in the Bible, even God at certain times was angry when it came to sin. Then He instructs us to be wise whenever we are angry.
In Ephesians 4:26-27 the biblical scripture, 'Be ye angry and sin not; let not the sun go down on your wrath. Neither give place to the devil.' First, God is instructing us, that it's natural to be angry, but commanded us not to sin. We can assume he means, do not allow anger drive us to hurt or kill anyone. Do not allow anger to drive us to do wrong. Do not allow anger to drive us to do things that could land us in hell. Then, He goes a little further, instructing us not to fall asleep angry, never allow anger to carry on in our sleep, and don't even think about what happened the day before.
According to ChristianPost.com, Texas megachurch Pastor Ed Young Jr. told his congregation Sunday that while all Christians get angry, not all understand what this emotion is. He called anger "a gift from God," explaining how it can be used constructively, which is its purpose.
When we think about anger being a gift from God, yes, we are angry with sin in this world, we are angry at ISIS and we are angry when another person dies without God and Satan has that soul, forever. That's SCR's take on it. God bless you.
