God comforts a father when his loved ones don’t understand him
One of the most frustrating experiences is trying to convey your thoughts to others and they don’t understand what you’re saying or even become unnecessarily offended. When others do not seem to understand you, the Bible says you should treat them with kindness and patience anyway. When you answer their hard words with a gentle reply, walls of discord will fall, and your attitude will be affected in a positive way toward that person. Just as Christ has been gracious and kind toward you, be kind to anyone with whom you have a disagreement.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another
A soft answer turneth away wrath: But grievous words stir up anger.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
