PROVERB FOR MONDAY, AUGUST 25, 2008
Not For Sale
Author requests article critique
"Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone." (Proverbs 25:15)
If you want to convince someone of your viewpoint this should be your approach. Take your time and speak thoughtfully. There is power in speech, and a "gentle tongue" holds great power. So many times people think that loud and demanding words will carry the day, but the fact is they usually create opposition and resistance. Even the powerful cannot resist the patient and gentle words of a wise person. Another proverb says that a "gentle answer turns away wrath". Often in life I have seen this proverb played out. When an angry irate person confronts you, and you respond gently, their anger is generally quelled, and the adversary is pacified. More is achieved by gentle words than all of the yelling in the world. Be patient, be gentle, be wise.
