Proverbs 15:1  “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

Many times we don’t think what effect a small word may have on another person.

With the ability to bless also comes the ability to offend.  Many times we’re not conscious of how we may effect others.

As we become more and more like Jesus, and we know that God is love, we see our lives becoming conformed to our Father’s nature of love and, in so doing, our words and our actions reflect more of our Savior.  Although we’ll never be perfect this side of heaven, He is perfecting us nonetheless through the power of the Holy Spirit…

Although we live in a world of trouble, take heart:  “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me.  Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows.  But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33 NLT
