Proverbs 15:1 (ESV)
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
*Words have power, and often determine the angle of the conversation and how far things will go. What we say coupled with how we say things carries a lot of weight, and determines the end result to the conversation. That's why it is always important to think before we speak, and allow God to lead us in what we say. Also, this doesn't have to just be for conversations to correct or fix something. God's guidance can help you even in situations when you may not know what to say when pursuing friendship, courtship, testifying, or opening up to people. Many times we often say things that convey the wrong message of intent, and do not depict what it is that we really desire. We must be able to convey what we need or what is desired in order to get the outcome that you desire, and what God wants. Today, let's work on speaking life into our situations and into others. Your faith can carry you through and trickle down to everyone else around you. If words have power and convey a certain message that causes action, what are you missing out on, saying conveying incorrectly, or dealing with when you don't have to?...Be positive in your words and tone, which will influence your actions.
