Proverbs 15:1: A gentle answer

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Proverbs 15:1 NIV

As followers of Jesus Christ we must do all things in love.  This stands not only for our actions and the way we live our lives, but the very words we use and how we communicate them.  Life and death are found in the power of the tongue.  We are responsible for the words that we speak.  We must remember that we are all broken and we are simply saved by God’s grace.  Those who don’t know Jesus Christ are lost and we must have deep compassion for where they are at.  Be willing to be led by the Holy Spirit in all that you say and do because we are called to be a vessel for His glory and His honor.
