A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.Proverbs 15:1Relationships of all kinds take work. I enjoy going to weddings and listening to the vows spoken mostly heart felt and sincere. How many people in marriages end up letting the flesh control them years after those Christian vows were spoken? If so shame on us for letting Satan in and kicking God out.Many who hurt others whether in a marriage or a friend relationship often are stubborn and don't realize it. If you have suffered hurt from ugly words don't fight back but simply pray for the person. There may be something deeper going on. Love is patient, love is kind, love doesn't keep a record of wrongs.If you are the recipient of someone else's anger or unforgiving spirit just keep praying for a breakthrough. God hears you. Above all don't lash out with your own angry words. Stand firm, be strong, and love unconditionally.PRAYER: Father I thank you for helping me stay patient on life through many situations that come my way. When it involves people I thank you for the extra measure you have provided me to stay calm. In Jesus' name. Amen.
