A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. Proverbs 15:1
I’m opting for soemthing short today – enjoy!
Have you ever tried to argue in a whisper? It is equally hard to argue with someone who insists on answering gently. On the other hand, a rising voice and harsh words almost always trigger an angry response. To turn away wrath and seek peace, choose gentle words.
