The gentle answer and soothing tongue
“Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds.” Hebrews 10: 24 nasb
After a date in our recent past, automobiles were equipped with a catalytic converter, which transforms dangerous pollutants into less harmful compounds.
The secret to this device is the catalyst it contains. This substance makes that chemical transformation possible.
Many dangerous pollutants in our society harm and even destroy our world. Emissions contribute to global warning. Angry blurts and twitters anger, hurt, and divide.
Contrary to an adage spoken “words can hurt, not just sticks and stones.
“A gentle answer turns away wrath.. the soothing tongue is a tree of life but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.” Proverbs 15.
