Morning all! Prov 25.15 says “Patience can persuade a prince, and soft speech can break bones.”
There are lots of conversations happening right now, one after the other, over and over again. Sometimes, it can be hard to work out the best approach. We all want the things we say to be effective in bringing about change, but this verse reminds us that HOW we present our views, solutions and opinions can be just as important as WHAT we have to say. This doesn’t mean we don’t need to be direct in addressing the issue and when it comes to BLM, for example, diluting the message of justice and equality is not an option. Every situation requires it’s own tailored response so let’s pray for God’s wisdom. Let’s ask Him to direct our response so that those listening are stirred into action, once and for all.
