v20 Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. v21 So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. Anger leads to destruction because anger doesn't produce righteousness. We cannot display love unto others with anger. There are times we need to be disciplined, but God should be in control of disciplining, He is our heavenly Father and we are His children.
In the Catholic faith, life is sacred, and should be treated as such. Every life is equal in the eyes of God, and justice must be brought to those who are taken advantage of. People whom may be vulnerable to this practice need to be protected, as no one should have to suffer such exploitation. Furthermore, with the dignity of the human person, comes the fact that God gave each and every one of us free will. God never forces anything upon us, instead we are on our own in making decisions for ourselves.

God wants His followers to help the poor, to give and not receive. “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.” –Charles Dickens. God commands us to be friendly to everyone, even our enemies. Orphans and widows need to be looked after too. “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” –James 1:27.
26). However, it accepts that justice must be the norm of the state so that each person has his share of the community’s goods through subsidiarity (Pope Benedict XVI, 2005, p. 26). The Church's Catholic social teaching offers a set of approaches to charity that are valid within and outside Church (Pope Benedict XVI, 2005, p. 27). Love (or Caritas), "will always prove necessary, even in the most just society" (Pope Benedict XVI, 2005, p. 28). There is no order that the state could enforce which would eliminate need for love and service of love.
In this, it is expected that all individuals, especially the most power who can take advantage of vulnerabilities, to practice love and justice.

In fact Gaudium et Spes, a document found in the Second Vatican Council, states that God did not have the intention of excluding anyone during Creation: ‘God intended the earth with everything contained in it for the use of all human beings and people. Thus, under the leadership of justice and in the company of charity, created goods should be in abundance for all in like manner.’’ Goods we see around us are gifts for all humanity therefore it is only reasonable that these goods are to be used by everyone equally. The book of Genesis portrays the narrative of Creation of the universe and our world and its climax when God created the human person under His image and likeness: "I
Before you manage time and some other things you must manage your life first. Your life is a resemblance of your belief.
