The Influence Of Softness
Proverbs are short sentences, drawn from long experience. What persuades a prince, is a person who can present heat without burning the skin and persuade by the timing of precision words. The soft words that break bones of anger refer to the actions of Gideon with the Ephraimites (Judges 8:1-2) and that of Abigail with King David (1 Samuel 25). Solomon was experienced in these type of things and wrote about his experiences as inspired by God for the remembrance of the Children of God. When one is trained in the arts of the Master pf Souls, when breaking bones, the bones of frustration, without distributing the skin is an accomplishment. Can your soft words break the hardness of anger?
By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
Jehovah Mekaddishkem (The LORD that Sanctifies You, Exodus 31:13); we address You with a knowledge from long drawn experiences and for this we thank You. We acknowledge the peace and calm wherein You guide us with heat that burns not, but heals and for this we give You praise. We decree and declare blessings wherein we act beyond the imaginations of our foes, so that influence of softness will persuade those who are troubled by adversity. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
