      20 – For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God


Confronting an angry person

1) Listen to a person: Hear him out and try to understand the whole story

2) Listen to a person: Ask him to repeat showing you want to understand the story and not condemning his anger

3) Listen: Ask him questions to clarify the story

  • Try to understand the plight (situation)

  • Express you understanding of his situation; speak with compassion; affirm the person’s feeling of anger

  • Share any additional information that may bring more understanding on the subject

  • At this time you may help the person realize that you have not wrong him (distorted anger)


Confronting an angry person

8) Confess any wrongdoing and seek to make right

An angry person needs someone who cares enough to listen and understand the pain

    • James 1: 19-20

    • Ephesians 6:4 – And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord

  • Mirroring the behavior (exploding anger)

    • Proverbs 15:1 – A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous (harsh) words stir up anger
