Speak Gently to One Another
- 2013 4 Jun
It is very tempting to begin a heated conversation with agitation. Starting a conversation in this way rarely leads to a positive outcome. In fact, studies show that a gentle and caring start more often leads to a gentle ending. Scripture guides us “to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people” (Titus 3:2). Who needs a gentle word from you today.
