Stop the Acceleration – May 14

At this present time, the car with the greatest acceleration speed in the world, is the Porsche 919 hybrid. It can go from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in just 1.9 seconds given the right conditions. That is unbelievably fast! Have you ever noticed how an argument can accelerate under the right conditions? It can go from 0-100 very, very quickly. An argument is not something we typically want to see accelerate but we would rather it not take off at all. In the Bible, in the book of Proverbs there is some very practical wisdom that can be applied that can help you from keeping an argument form taking off. In Proverbs 15:1 it reads, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” The right response can stop an argument dead in its tracks.
