So, I know somewhere in the Bible it says something along the lines of, “Don’t let the sun go down on your anger.” So my question is, if we are provoked into anger, why shouldn’t we? Like, if we had no reason to be angry, then I could understand. But if life doesn’t go our way, why is it wrong to be angry after the sunset?

I think it’s speaking metaphorically, not literally. The point is: Don’t hold a grudge

It means it in a way to like not go to bed angry at someone and always be like “oh i hate them so much, I can’t believe they did this…” type of thing because it isn’t healthy for us! We aren’t made to hold grudges or be angry at people. Give it to God and Go to Sleep,

Anger has a way of making you do things you would not normally and when you hold on to certain instances and ponder on them, your thoughts shift further away from Jesus and how He would handle the situation. I believe that what Paul was trying to say was, get rid of anger as quick as possible, so that you can go on living your life, with Christ as the priority. You could keep this in mind ” It takes grace and maturity to see and understand why the other person acted that way” So live in grace and maturity.
