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.
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.
