Proverbs 15:1 Amplified Bible
A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger.
Do not waste time bothering whether you “love” your neighbour – act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved you will presently come to love him.
– C.S. Lewis
It can be hurtful when our spouses lash out at in a moment of disappointment or frustration. The Word of God teaches us that a soft answer will turn away their anger. God blesses those who live according to the principles of His Word. Instead of retaliating out of hurt, try a soft answer next the time that your spouse snaps at you.
