A Truth to Live – I have the power to shift conversations toward godly values. Regardless of another person’s comments made to me, God’s Word is clear – my answers can turn away wrath or crank up the anger! The old adage “it takes two to tango” is true. If I choose not to fuel the heat of a conversation, but rather temper it with gentle answers, God’s Word will go into effect and His peace will bring transformation – right before my eyes!
Scripture – “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Proverbs 15:1
Prayer – Dear Lord, I believe Your Word! I choose today to see Your hand at work in my conversations – even the difficult ones. Help me to realize that my words can shape the destiny of a conversation. Fill me with the wisdom of Your Word so that I can respond with gentleness and not with wrath! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
