Daily Dose – Gentle Speech


Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger

How you speak can strongly affect those around you.

If someone is hot under the collar, do you quell that anger with calming words or inflame him with harsh ones? Do you start a forest fire with your sister who irritates you or quench the blaze with soft ones?

Anger’s heat makes wise decision making impossible. But God’s word offers advice that brings peace to our lives.

Gentle speech leads to wiser choices.
