Hulk Smash – Part Four

This is the last part in our Hulk Smash series, unless I think of another topic. 😉 I hope that you’ve enjoyed this!

Revenge.

So many times in movies, books, and real life, actions are fueled by revenge. Not necessarily with the Hulk, but… well, I thought it needed to be in here. The Bible talks a lot about revenge, and what it says isn’t good.

Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say,

“I will take revenge;
I will pay them back,”
says the Lord.

Romans 12:19

This verse even quotes another verse that talks about revenge. The message is clear. Never take revenge. Let the Lord AVENGE you. 🙂

I’m Listening

This quote is quite possibly one of my favorite quotes from the Avengers. Although there are some even better ones. 😉

Remember that God is always listening to you. Even if you feel like Iron Man ran into you and shoved you to who knows where, God is still there (yes, like Loki was! Although God doesn’t have an ulterior motive.) and he will always be listening.

Hulk Smash – Part Three

In the clip in the last Hulk Smash post, you may notice something interesting. At first, Thor tries to speak gently to Hulk. “We’re not your enemies, Banner. Try to think.”

Now, although this doesn’t work very well with the Hulk, the Bible tells us that it can work with *cough cough* um, more normal people.

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Proverbs 15:1

Being gentle, kind, and understanding with those who are angry is one of the best ways to deal with anger. The worst thing you can do is get angry back at them or say something to provoke them. Kindness and love. The anger antidotes. I can’t guarantee that they will always work for everyone, but it’s the best way. If it doesn’t work, hit them with your awesome hammer pray for them. Prayer works.
