“A SOFT answer turns away wrath; but a GRIEVOUS word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge aright; but the mouth of fools pours out foolishness.”
– Proverbs 15:1-2
REV. WALKER SAYS: Our words have power. They can build, destroy, encourage and discourage.
Spoken harshly may cause someone to respond with anger. We need use our words and tone of voice wisely.
(Rev. A. Marie Walker is servant pastor of St. John Baptist Church in Wilmerding.)
