Bible verses about yelling
Christians should avoid yelling because yelling is usually brought on by anger. Christians are to build others up, but yelling only starts arguments and more problems. We’re to remain calm in situations and we’re to speak the truth in love without shouting at others. Do you struggle with raising your voice? Here are some Scriptures to help.
