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

Romans 12:17 tells us to, “not repay anyone evil for evil”…and I Corinthians 13:6 reminds us that,  “Love doesn’t delight in evil.”   The war of words is waged on a bloody battlefield… with many casualties and walking wounded that never recover from the pain inflicted by unkind and caustic words.  When we simply take a moment and answer a mean verbal attack with kindness instead…it defuses the situation immediately…for we deprive the enemy of  ammunition.
