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

This Proverb shows that we always have a choice. We can react to a hostile situation by defusing the negativity with kindness, quietness, and a servant-like attitude. Or we can react with cruel, bitter words in retaliation…spewing the same poison from our own mouths. The choice is ours. But remember, when we return evil for evil…when angry emotions run high…we are not in control, but rather the selfish desires of our sinful heart is ruling us…and we are then left open and vulnerable to the enemy. And the enemy would love to have you angry all the time…alienating family, friends, and those you care for…until no one is left.
