“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” – Proverbs 15:1 CSB
Pay attention to the tone of your voice this week. How do you respond to others? Especially when you are frustrated, overwhelmed or in disagreement with someone?
Be gentle with yourself. Learn to enjoy some quiet time
Take 5 minutes a day and sit outside. Don’t do anything. Just breathe the fresh air. Listen for the birds. Notice what is around you. Be present in the moment.
“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” – Mark Twain
What anger is causing harm to your spirit? How do you need to set it down before God this week?
