The Power of a Soft Answer

A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger (Prov. 16:1).

Why is it so easy to return evil for evil?
Why is it so easy to return a harsh answer to others negativity?

Christian's in our flesh, it is easier to do wrong than to do right.  In our flesh, it is easier to hurt and tear someone down than to build them up.

The problem with harsh and destructive responses to others negativity is, responding negatively is just as natural for them as it is for you.  They hurt you, then you naturally hurt them, then they will naturally hurt you into an endless cycle of each of you hurting one another.

Christian's, we must decide to break negative relationship cycles, by bringing light into a situation with our deliberate practice of giving a soft answer.

Try following God's way, and witness the power of a soft, Spirit filled response toward negative people.

God Bless,

Pastor Brian Kennedy, Sr
