Verse of the Day: Proverbs 15:1
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Do your words build people up or tear them down? More importantly, do they reflect the love of God? Sometimes in the heat of the moment we may say unkind, cruel things that we really don’t mean, but once said they cannot be unheard. Reckless words cut deep and leave emotional scars and uncontrolled anger is hurtful to both the person who harbors it and to those around them. Learn to control your anger and choose your words wisely especially in difficult situations. Your message is better received when given with kindness, gentleness and humility. Let your words be an encouragement and an inspiration to those who hear them. Let your words direct others to God’s love instead of stirring up anger.
Lord, forgive me for the times when I am reckless with my words. Help me to control my anger and choose my words wisely. Soften my heart so that I may act and speak with kindness, gentleness and humility. In Jesus Name, Amen
