A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. – Proverbs 15:1 NIV
When we are kind when we choose our words, others are more likely to treat us nicely in return.
When we say whatever comes to mind, we sometimes speak too quickly, and might say something hurtful.
The Lord asks us to love one another, and part of being loving means choosing our words carefully. Amen.
