I love the last two verses of this chapter, and I think both are summed up in verse 14:14 To start a conflict is to release a flood; stop the dispute before it breaks out. I heard it once said that our words can either be gasoline or water to a fire. We can choose to engage in an argument, to keep silent, or to answer back with calmness and reason. I have practiced more, when impatiently waiting in a line, to have kind words to give to the harried and stressed person who is waiting on the line. It's amazing how much of a change that can make, to me and to them.Last little phrase I've heard and tried to remember at times: "There is such a thing as an unspoken thought." Really goes well with verse 28!
