A gentle answer

Somewhere in one of my many middle of the night wake ups, the Lord gave me the verse, “A gentle answer turns away anger (Ps 15:1).” Immediately I knew it regarded Gideon and my reactions to his many testing gestures and truth be told it works, really and truly. When I feel myself getting pretty hot under the collar (putting it nicely) I say the verse in my mind and it really diffuses my response to him. Now if I could just memorize more scripture I can only imagine the power it would have in my life!
