A gentle response defuses anger,
but a sharp tongue kindles tempers. – Proverbs
there seems to be heightened emotions swirling in the world today.
don’t let the tension it produces change your response.
gentle responses defuse situations.
even if you feel strongly passionate about the issues –
let the worst in the situation
come face to face
with the best of you.
may there be peace on earth – shalom (nothing missing, nothing broken).
