speak sweetly and softly

Speak softly and sweetly, and cultivate a good mind. Only then will you earn the respect of others. You cannot always oblige, but you can always speak obligingly. Do not listen to evil talk. 🤭😊

Kaikeyi paid heed to the evil words of Manthara, which ultimately led to the exile of Rama, whom she had loved much more than her own son, Bharata.Today do you find any woman named Kaikeyi or Manthara? No… 😲

Society will not respect those who indulge in evil talk and listen to evil. So, you should always speak and listen to good words. If you happen to hear something evil do not share it with others.What is the purpose in causing unrest to others by telling them something, which has caused unrest to you.Today there are people who not only lend their ear to evil talk but also spread the same to the rest of society causing a great deal of unrest. 🤭

Let your tongue utter such words, which will give joy to others.😊😊

  1. So true great word.

    A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness.
    Proverbs 15:1‭-‬2 NLT
