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

The moment after angry words have been lobbed our way, we have two choices to make…either return fire with a mean and unkind volley of words ourselves, or take on the attitude of a servant and defuse the situation with kindness instead. The first choice is so easy to do and more of a knee-jerk reaction to hostility. While the second is much harder, and requires us to stay in control of both our emotions and tongue.
