Pull over – it’s the Tone Police

A lot of Christian women seem to have the mistaken idea that “speaking the truth in love” equates to being “nice.” We should always be smiling and sweet and never say anything that might hurt someone’s feelings or could rock the boat. But what does the Bible say about our tone? Michelle and Amy dig into Scripture and take on the “Tone Police” in this episode.

    Hi There,

    I am thinking about scripture and how it applies to our “tone.” James 3:17 NLT says,
    17 “But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.”
    Another favorite verse about tone is: “ A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 25:15 ESV / I think these verses would have been worth mentioning during your podcast. Blessings to you both.
