“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” (KJV) Proverbs 15:1
“It is not so much about your words as it is about your attitude.” I have been sharing that idea with a lot of people lately, and I finally caught on that it was for me. I am not a tall person, so I have been known to make up for my height in attitude.
Once I put the idea into practice, I noticed a huge difference (even with telephone solicitors). Choosing to have a peaceful heart when I respond to a moment, a word or a situation means that I pour out peace over that moment, word or situation. It is not easy to have anger or even frustration when you are confronted with peace.
Today, choose to be soft and at peace in the way that you respond.
