A Soft (and Wise) Answer
Today’s reading: Judges 7:1-8:35
In today’s reading we come across a magnificent example of how “a soft answer turns away wrath.” This is Monday, an easy day to be in a bad mood. Not you and me, of course, but perhaps someone else in your world. Look for ways to turn wrath away by giving a soft answer instead of responding in kind.
