You can’t control what another person says. But if someone’s angry words ignite a conversation,  you can stall an emotional explosion.

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

Harsh, angry words + gentle answers don’t seem to fit together.

But it’s God’s way.

The loud, angry person sounds tough. But the person that replies with a gentle answer is stronger.

Try it some time.

A surprisingly gentle answer can prevent an angry spark from detonating an outburst…or damaging a relationship.

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