A Gentle Answer (Proverbs 15)
About the Guest
When someone honks their horn, scowls at you, or offers some sort of symbol of their affection, it makes you mad. You're mad because they're mad. A harsh word stirs up anger just like Proverbs 15 says. The same thing happens in relationships. When I bring home the road rage, it escalates negativity. Unless someone compassionately responds to me. Looking past what is outside, listening to what is inside, and then hugging it. Yes, a harsh word stirs up anger. But a gentle answer turns away wrath.
Have you ever experienced road rage?
