What can Proverb 15:1 do to and for our relationships with our love's one and friends?
On this day on my facebook wall i share this wonderful post that touches on the danger of anger in relationships, how it causes distances and how it can be curb.
A Professor was teaching about Proverbs
He asked his students, 'why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?' The students thought for awhile.
One said, because we lose our calm. But
why shout when the other person is just next to you? Asked the professor. Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you are angry?
The students gave some answers but none satisfied the Professor. Finally he explained, 'when two people are angry at each other, there is a distance in their hearts psychologically.
To cover the distance, they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are,the stronger they will shout to hear each other through that great distance.
Then the Professor asked, 'What happens when two people fall in love? They don't
shout at each other but talk softly. Why?
Because their hearts are psychologically
The distance between them is very close.
The Professor continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens? They don't speak, only whisper and they even get closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that's
So next time you shout on a loved one, know that you are creating distance
between your heart and that person’s heart.
Proverbs 15:1 says a gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Please share and resteem with friends you maybe healing a hot tempered person today.
