A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Oh boy, somedays it is so hard to bite my tongue! But so liberating all at the same time! No remorse comes when I learn the art of self-control and reply with a gentle tone and words. It has taken many moons to achieve nuances of this, and certainly still a work in progress. But asking the Holy Spirit to open and close my mouth for me at just the right times, has increased my success for freedom in this arena.🙏
