Today Reminder – 25 August 2014 (Day 17 – Return to Proverbs)

A reminder for today
A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. (Proverbs 15:1)

We can be so stubborn when we want to. We have the opportunity to get to the bottom of an issue but we choose to let our own emotions get the better of us. Sometimes it might be something else that made you upset and then you would react incorrectly to anyone else. Other should not be our punching bags when we need to vent out our issues. Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit (Verse 4). Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time! (Verse 23) Fear of the LORD teaches wisdom; humility precedes honour (Verse 33). We should control our anger and our words. Let the Lord be your guide and the guard at your mouth so that only good and uplifting words will come out of your river of life. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
