Monthly Challenge- Feb 2010
“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
Let Go: There is no way around it... moving and adjusting to a new home are stressful. When we are stressed we can often have less energy to bring to the relationships around us. The result is a “short fuse” when it comes to dealing with the people who are closest to us, especially our family.
Start Today: You can set the “tone” in your household with calm, confident, loving responses. Test Proverbs 15:1 and respond gently to those around you. Take note of its effect. Did you see anger diffused as a result?
Move Forward: Not only respond gently, but each day tell each person in your family at least one thing that you appreciate about him or her.
