A soft answer turneth away wrath but grievous words stir up anger. Proverbs 15:1
Gentleness will disarm the most furious, but angry words spoken will begat wrath.
Examples of turning away wrath:
Aaron (Leviticus 10:16-20)
Reubanites (Joshua 22:15-34)
Gideon (Judges 8:1-3)
Hannah (1 Samuel 1:15-17)
Abigail (1 Samuel 25:23)
A gentle reply to someone who is angry or upset will pacify that person. Later on in Proverbs 20:3…It is honorable for a man to stop stirring since any fool can start a quarrel.
Learning the application of “the Golden Rule”, Do we not comprehend the meaning of Jesus’ words when He said, “Therefore, whatever you want them to do to you, do also to them.” Matthew 7:12
Respond and do the right thing daily!
If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. 1 Peter 4:11
