I am here, Jesus.
I had righteous indignation. So did all the Hebrew prophets before me. It is a necessary emotion to have. Dr. King also had it, and he moved the people because of it. It is a true motor and not something to be condemned. I know some feel that it is not a godly emotion, but it is.
Everything depends on one’s motive. If a person wants a better world, people will know that. It will be felt intuitively. It is also important to have nothing but love in one’s heart for those who perpetrate injustice, even as God desires that we assert what is right.
Indignation is not anger. It comes from a sense of dignity, and the feeling of being fair, and when these are violated, righteous indignation is there. But it always results in a desire to correct the injustice, not to perpetrate negativity. So it does not put the enemy down - it seeks to build up the concept of fairness.
So what I am saying is that righteous indignation is a normal, healthy response to injustice. It is healthy because it seeks to correct the wrong. It is the opposite of apathy.
