A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Proverbs 15:1 NIV
When I read this, what comes to mind is how important it is to speak with love when we react to things. As Christian husbands and wives, we are under the watchful eye of all who are around us. Do you get frustrated easily and say mean things? Do you attack people with your words? When we use loving words to combat angry words, what then can used to hurt? It’s hard to use loving and gentle words, when someone else is using harsh one. Therefore we must rely on God to do our speaking. Amen.
