A Gentle Answer

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


Thought

Why is it so hard to endure an unjust or unfair criticism? Why do we always have to defend ourselves no matter how ridiculous the charge? Often the problems we have with others simply escalate because we do not choose to forgive and let them go on in the Lord!

Prayer

Precious and Holy God, help me more carefully guard my speech from things you despise, especially gossip, slander, and innuendo. Thank you. In Jesus name and by Jesus’ grace I pray. Amen.
