Scripture: Proverbs 15:1
Pastor Rick Robinson
“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
Solomon is teaching us how to have peace. Peace at home, peace at work, peace in our relationships. If wrath is like a hurricane with mighty winds, thunder and rain then a soft answer will turn it away.
The next time you are in a storm and peace seems to be nowhere around, ask God to give you the words and speak gently. Give soft words, kind words and then watch the storm disperse.
Father, help me to be a peacemaker… Help me to be someone who speaks soft words when the storm of life is happening all around me. Give me words that would calm the raging storm and bring peace that surpasses human understanding.
