I wondered the same thing for a long time - what it takes is prayer and practice. The more I asked God for help with it and practiced doing the right thing, the more natural and automatic it became!
the soft answer always cppl down the tempers.
Love it. Thank you
Honestly sometimes I find an angry outburst comes from me out of nowhere. I hate it because it’s not how I want to be. I’m doing better but will I ever get to the place where I don’t do this?
I walk away, before I say something that's not suppose to say, You can't take back your words.
A very helpful reminder.
Listening loudly provides a means for greater understanding. Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.(Proverbs 14:29). Listening also gives us a chance to respond rather than react to what others are saying and trains us to bear the fruit of self-control.
Listening is important. Enjoyed this spiritual encouragement today.
