Flipping through the Bible and came across this scripture.
Proverbs 15:1 “An answer, when mild, turns away rage, but a word causing pain makes anger to come up.”
It’s surprising how well this works. If someone’s mad at you, replying calmly and honestly can help a great deal towards sorting things out and keeping the peace. This is a neat scripture with the recipe for peaceful communication with other people.
The only trick is remembering to use the recipe when you sense an argument coming on… that comes with practice!
