Nothing diffuses a tense situation better than a soft response.
When passions flare the wise exercise self control.
A knee-jerk response, or an offense easily taken, can exacerbate an already sensitive exchange.
And often we’re only left with regret.
Scripture asks us to seek peace without compromising our convictions.
A gentle comeback accomplishes this challenging balancing act. There’s nothing weak about it.
A gentle response can make a greater impact. It points to the power behind your meekness—God.
