Devotional: Gentle vs Harsh
June 5, 2022
Wives, are you expressing “the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit?”
Husbands, are you using harsh words that invoke anger?
A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger. (Proverbs 15:1)
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair or gold jewelry or fine clothes, but from the inner disposition of your heart, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in God’s sight. (1 Peter 3:3)
Always be prepared to give a defense to everyone who asks you the reason for the hope that is in you. But respond with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15)
