A soft answer turneth away wrath; but grievous words stir up anger. (Proverbs 15:1)  I should be the last person to write about a soft voice. I’ve always had a big mouth! I guess that is why I made a good cheerleader in school, but a terrible bookkeeper after college. To illustrate this point, let’s compare the soft and the hard of our everyday life to a soldier’s military life: a Sealy Posturepedic bed with a Down Comforter or a hard cot with a wool blanket//soft pajamas or military cargoes//Soft-soap, lavender-scent or a bar of Dial//a soft-padded dining room chair or a hard wooden bench.  My point?  If soft things are more appealing to us, a soft voice is more appealing to others. And remember, God has never yelled at you. God not only challenges us to use a softer voice, the Incarnate, himself, uses one every day. God whispers to you because real, authentic love is near enough to not have to shout. Shout when someone is about to hit your car–not when you wanna make a point or win an argument. 🙂
