It’s WORDS WEEK here on GUWG, where we’re examining what the Book of Proverbs says about communication.
Once again, here’s our PROVERB-O-RAMA WHEEL OF WORDS:
Today’s topic: GENTLE words.
Here’s today’s featured proverb, followed by a few other gentle reminders:
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. (Proverbs 15:1)
Let your gentleness be evident to all. (Philippians 4:5)
What do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a whip, or in love and with a gentle spirit? (1 Corinthians 4:21)
The unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit … is of great worth in God’s sight. (1 Peter 3:4)
Never forget our key verse this week. Jesus said: “The mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” (Luke 6:45) What was Jesus’ heart full of? Here’s what he said about himself:
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:29)
Want to be like Jesus?
BE GENTLE. PLEASE.
