Remember the old Beatles' song All You Need is Love? Well, I think they were on to something there. And remember the verse in Proverbs that says "A soft answer turneth away wrath?" God's on to the same thing, though I think God probably had that thought before the Beatles did. We had an occasion to experience wrath in our home yesterday, and love diffused it. The soft answer turned it away. Completely and totally. Nary a trace of it left. Sometimes I think we read our Bibles and nod in agreement with the things God says, but go our merry ways and STILL screw up our lives by not heeding the Word. So today, when you are tempted to be irritated, aggravated, or otherwise offended, remember to put on Christ, and put off the old man. You are a new creature in Christ. Old things are passed away; behold, ALL things are become new. Praise the Lord!
