A Gentle Answer

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.—Proverbs 15:1 NIV
Next time you are tempted to speak harshly against another who has hurt you, stop for a moment. Is the problem as serious as you’re making it? Will your words improve the situation, lead to a solution, or only show your anger? Whatever you say, be compassionate and caring. Set your mind on mending the relationship.

TODAY'S PRAYER:

Keep me, God, from stirring up anger. Help me use words that comfort and heal.
