Every day, we are faced with a decision in how we respond to situations in life. We can either choose to react emotionally, or respond with wisdom.
The initial reaction for most people is usually the emotional one. How we respond, especially when we’ve been misunderstood, says a great deal about the depth of our character.
We should take every opportunity to respond to people and problems the way God wants us to. With this approach, we can avoid escalating the issue and giving place to the enemy.
It is imperative that we learn to hold our tongues and speak from a place of peace. As a result, we’ll experience victory over our emotions and fulfill God’s will.
“A soft answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stir up anger.” – Proverbs 15:1
