I am here, Jesus.

Yes, there has been confusion in your mind, and in the minds of others, about righteous indignation. When Dr. King spoke, he had a great sense of a wrong committed against him and his people. This gave him the stimulus to go forward with his mission.

As I said earlier, when this emotion is narrowly focused, and one is only concerned about oneself, it loses its power. But when it is directed outward, as with Dr. King and the Hebrew prophets, it becomes a powerful motor and incentive for change.

If a person is outraged at being treated poorly, and this outrage does not go beyond that person’s narrow sense of self, then it is not productive. But if that person is able to expand his or her perceptions to a higher truth, then righteous indignation has achieved its objective.
