"When you choose to be pleasant and positive in the way you treat others, you have also chosen, in most cases,how you are going to be treated by others. It is simple; to respond is positive to react is negative!" -Zig Ziglar
Reacting is the easiest thing. It is intuitive, instinctive, and usually dangerous. When we simply react to the unexpected it often turns out badly.
Responding is a much better alternative to simply reacting. Because a response requires deliberation and planning.
Proverbs 15:1 says: A gentle response defuses anger, but a sharp tongue kindles a temper-fire..
Whether we respond or react is the biggest indicator of our attitude toward life. If we can learn to respond to situations, we are much more likely to have a positive outlook on life and also much less stress!
I don't know about you but I could use a little less drama so here is to responding!
Proverbs 15:18 says Hot tempers start fights;
a calm, cool spirit keeps the peace.
