We have the freedom of speech, not the freedom of screech. Stop the angry words. Just because you’re being provoked to anger, you don’t have to give in to it.
Be insighted to compassion from within, not incited to hate from without. Insulting people isn’t the freedom of speech. It’s bondage to hatred. Try not to be someone who provokes and stokes anger.
The freedom of speech isn’t a license for unbridled unkindness. No one has the right to incite violence. Freedom of expression that intentionally provokes aggression, frequently leads to retaliation.
Anybody can incite anger. Be a hero who incites kindness and delight. Leaders who incite anger are dangerous to follow! To respond to provocation, like a puppet on a string, is to give up self-control. When you let people provoke you, they revoke your freedom of choice.
Disagreement doesn’t cause conflict. Unkindness does! A mouth full of insults, results in pain and anger whenever it speaks. It’s wearisome to continually hear insults, anger, unproven accusations, and deception. Christianity that incites unkindness is counterfeit.
