I recently saw this post on Pinterest and it really got me thinking about the causes of conflict in marriage and in relationships in general. Is the wrong tone of voice really such a huge part of the issue? Is this a new revelation or have people understood it for centuries?

So often we forget that in attempting to win an argument we lose so much if we don’t respect and care for the person we are talking to. Proverbs 15:1 reveals that the wisdom of using a soft tone ‘A gentle response defuses anger, but a sharp tongue kindles a temper-fire.’

How difficult is it for us to respond gently in a difficult situation? Gentleness doesn’t mean backing away or ignoring the problem but it involves addressing the problem with the right attitude.
