Biblical Reflections: Proverbs 15:1

Proverbs 15:1 – A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

If you have ever heard a train coming from miles away, then you can hear an echo of Christ’s teaching to turn the other cheek in this verse penned almost a thousand years before His coming. It still rings true today. Nothing escalates a situation faster than angry words. When next tempted to raise your voice,consider this truth.
