Proverbs 16:21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent:
and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
(TLB) The wise man is known by his common
sense, and a pleasant teacher is the best.
A harsh teacher is
Proverbs 15:1 (NIV) A gentle answer turns away
wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
The Holy Spirit produces gentleness in us.
A man or woman under the anointing of God will
