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

It grieves my heart when I see fellow Believers returning angry words for something they don’t agree with. Especially this crazy year with the pandemic and the disunity and discord across our nation concerning the Presidential Election… Social Media is full of brother against brother trashing each other’s posts… emboldened by the fact they’re typing their poisonous words rather than speaking to each other face to face. We don’t fully know the power of harsh words, but Proverbs 25:15 illustrates the power of kind words well, “Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.”
