Gentle Answers (Proverbs 13-15)

The proverbs about our speech speaks to me today. Oh, that we in 2020 would learn these truths and apply them to our lives.

We tend to want to have the last word. We don’t listen to each other because we are insisting our own voices be heard. Hate is the language of so many, and enemies are those who simply disagree with us. Opinion is touted as fact, and the majority of us are too quick to believe what we hear without discernment.

I wish that all of us understood that:

A gentle answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger. (15:1)
