Ancient wisdom for today (15)

August 15th 2012, Day 15, Proverbs 15

“A gentle response defuses anger, but a sharp tongue kindles a temper-fire” Proverbs 15: 1 (The Message)

What needs adding to this?

There is so much anger and frustration in the lives of folk around us that it’s a constant battle not to adopt the same stand-point. A sharp response to a sharp comment only stokes the situation; today’s wisdom from proverbs encourages us to look for an alternative to adding more fuel-to-the-fire.

With years of experience playing bass in a wide range of situations a dear friend once said that if you were to cut me in half you'd find the word 'bass' written all the way through - yes I know that's so cliche - but that doesn't make it any less true! Like so many people I have more than one 'day' job - but most of my work-time these days is spent working for Interconnected Solutions.
