Gentleness is the quality of carefully choosing our words. Proverbs 15:1 says “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” As believers in Christ we are to cultivate an ability to read a situation and know how to appropriately apply the right words with an overall goal of peacefully living with each other (1 Thessalonians 4: 11). Read 2 Timothy 2: 24-26, James 3: 17 and Galatians 6: 1 – how is gentleness in these verses to be applied in times of conflict?
