Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

Proverbs 15:1
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Turn Away Wrath

Before you react to something or someone in anger, ask yourself this: Is it really worth it? Sure, maybe it will feel good at that moment to let yourself get enraged, but are the consequences worthwhile? Who will get hurt? Who will you offend? You may suffer strained and broken relationships, ill health, or even put yourself in danger.

You can turn away wrath with a kind, softly spoken word. The choice is yours.
