A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Proverbs 15:1 NIV
Think of all the relationships that could have been restored in our families, our communities and our nation, if someone was willing to speak with kindness and gentleness. A gentle answer turns away wrath. Think of how many fights, quarrels and divorces that would not have happened if words and actions of grace had been heard and seen. Imagine how many relationships could start to be healed if someone who is acquainted with God’s grace begins to talk and act in gentleness. God’s grace is his power in the human soul to become a new creation, to live in the life that is called eternal. Today may you choose to live your life in the emotions and words of his grace. A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. It is your choice, grace brings a gentle answer, and your sin nature brings a harsh word. There will be no regret or sorrow because of your words of kindness, gentleness, compassion and grace. Enjoy!
