The other day I heard someone being very abrupt to their spouse. The person wasn’t being particularly rude, just abrupt and it felt rather cold. (This was in an airport, so I’m guessing they were feeling tense and in a hurry.) It made me think about how important it is to couch your words kindly and peaceably. A simple “please” or “thank you” can mean so much. Tone of voice is very important as well. You can communicate a truckload of attitude with voice nuance. Let’s use our voices to communicate affection and consideration.
Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 NIV
