Answer Gently

Resist the urge to be angered by another’s words or actions. Allow the Spirit of the Lord to guide you in wisdom and peace — giving you an answer that calms the storm.

Proverbs 15:1 — A gentle response diverts anger,
but a harsh statement incites fury.

Proverbs 16:24 —Pleasant words are honey from a honeycomb—sweet to the soul and healing for the body.a]”>[a]

Proverbs 21:23 — Whoever watches his mouth and tongue keeps himself from trouble.

Ephesians 4:29 —  Let no filthy talk be heard from your mouths, but only what is good for building up people and meeting the need of the moment.a]”>[a] This way you will administer grace to those who hear you.

Psalm 19:14 — May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
