Proverbs 15 :1 (NIV) A gentle answer turns away wrath.

I remember the story of an African American preacher in the deep south of Alabama in America. He was in a restaurant one day, with his family after church, he had ordered a whole cooked chicken for his family to enjoy and just as it was put on the table. A mob of Klu Klux Klan members came in, all in their white uniforms, they walked right over to his table. Noticing the cooked chicken on the table one of them said to the preacher, “whatever you do to that chicken, we are gonna do to every one of you.” The preacher asked, “did you say whatever I do to this chicken you will do to every one of us?” One of the Klan’s men retorted, “yes, you heard that right, whatever you do to that chicken, we are gonna do to each one of you!” The old preacher paused for a second, then lifting the chicken up in his hands he put it to his mouth and then gave it a kiss and put it back down on the table, and smiled. The Klan members dropped their heads, turned around and walked away.

My friend, each and every day, you need to rely on the wisdom of the lord on how to live a God-centred life style. So no matter what circumstances you find your in, the lord will give you the grace and wisdom of how to handle things, and what to say. The Bible says in Proverbs 3: 5 (NIV) Trust in the lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. Lord help me today to lean on your guidance and grace, that I may always trust on your understanding and wisdom, for every area of my life in you.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
