A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger (Proverbs 15:1).
Words, words, words…
What do they really mean?
What you think is who you are
And words can “spill the beans!”
Words can say just who you are–
Is jealousy in your heart?
If your words are harsh and mean
They can drive two friends apart!
The Bible says a soft word
Stops anger before it begins!
But an angry word can stir it up
And you might choose to sin.
Can you practice soft words
With all the ones you meet?
Can you use words like Jesus did—
Words that are kind and sweet?
Love will help you do that
Love will guard your mind
Jesus’ love will change your choice
To words that help, you’ll find!
When God made the world He did it by speaking words.
What kind word have you said to someone today?
What have you said to someone that might not be kind? Did you ask God, and that individual, to forgive you?
