Guidance in Verbiage and Actions

Proverbs 25:15 (ESV)

15 With patience a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue will break a bone.

*Every situation is not meant to be handled with aggression or force. Sometimes it's the kindness behind a suggestion, and the gentleness secured in an uplift that causes change to occur and persuasion to happen. Think about the last time you judged, went off on, forced, got smart with, or "stated your piece" without considering God's guidance or walking in love. Did it go over well? We are called to cause change, and persuade hearts...This in turn impacts our own, but it is all in how you say it more so then what is said. Yes, be bold...But, does that mean be bitter or boastful? Sure, be passionate...But, does it that mean be forceful? There is a time and place for everything, but use God's timing to act according to His guidance, and speak the way you are led...
