“Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.”
 
Blaise Pascal
 
A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD
 
Our host arranged a driver to motor us throughout his beautiful city. Our driver edged his car in front of a black sedan as two lanes merged. When we took an exit, the black sedan raced past, pulled in front, and blocked our way.
 
An angry man jumped out and confronted our driver. An exchange of verbal insults followed, and then a few fists flew. Eventually, everyone got back in their cars, and we quickly drove away.
 
I flashed back to a similar incident more than 50 years ago. My father slowly drove along a narrow road looking for an address, unaware that a car behind us was eager to pass. When the opportunity arose, the angry driver sped by, pulled in front of us, jumped out, and yelled at my father. Rather than yelling back, my big, athletic dad apologized, deescalating the tension.
 
As we drove off, dad told us that all he could think of was, “a gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” (Proverbs 15:1)
Anyone can make things worse. The truly strong person choses soft words and selects the path of peace.
