Watch the Words

today's reading.
Proverbs 15:1    A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

the blog.
Responding with soft words isn't my default when I get mad, I'm stressed out or my feelings get hurt. More often than not, my first impulse is to use my words to "make things right" in my eyes. Now that may make me feel better temporarily, but responding straightaway with harsh words rarely makes the situation better. In fact, I'd say about 98% of the time, I wish after the fact, that I had chosen different words, used a different tone and opted for different timing.

So how did Proverbs 15:1 speak to you today? Going forward, what can you do to make sure you're dispensing more soft responses when you find yourself in a difficult situation? Tami W.
