This thing of talk without thinking happens very often, people with their harsh words, tend to offend others regardless of the damage they cause to their neighbor.
People who act with patience attend to behave correctly before others, giving example to others, so that they can practice the same.
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
A person with a soft answer appeases the anger of others, but everyone who has a rough word attends to behave very incorrectly, and this causes anger and contention in them, which hurts people.
People are going from day to day from bad to worse, but who is it that causes these things to happen? Well, satan, he takes advantage of people being angry to do them what he wants.
The proverbist mentioned each of the things with which he was: People who were angry at anything, others had various ways of how to act towards others.
The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
This is the benefit of the soft response, if we act with wisdom from above, and continue to practice the good work of the Lord, then we can solve any type of situation. A wise man is understood and listens to the voice of the Lord to be able to continue forward, but the foolish man with insulting words insults, looks for problems, and lives questioning what the wise and obedient man says. That’s why it’s good that you’re wise and let go of the anger and practice the good, and we will be fine every day.
Benefits of the soft answer
Today’s article, which I have read twice, reflects very well how good and edifying it may be for us and others to be patient and peaceful people, as a result of the “Benefits of the soft answer”
Answering others without rough or wrathful words, but with love, may solve difficult situations in life, when we sometimes meet angry people.
The wisdom of the Holy Scriptures gives us the way to appease and calm others so that we can help them.
“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” Proverbs 15:1
The Lord Jesus Christ here, when he was on the earth, behaved meekly and was lowly in heart. We can imitate him so that we can find rest for our souls, as well as give peace to others.
We, in fact, are called to become like Jesus is.
May the Lord God create in us the faculty of being meek and lowly in heart. In that way we’ll be able to help people, for the glory of Jesus Christ—which needs to be our goal in this world, as followers of Him
