Verse of the Day

Proverbs 16:24

Kind words are like honey—sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.

Proverbs 16:24

Gentle Words are Healing

Kind words are so good for the soul. They can restore relationships and bring healing to others. Hateful words do the opposite. They can destroy relationships and tear someone apart. It is important to use our words wisely when talking with others.

Think about a time when someone said something to you that encouraged you and brought you hope and joy. Kind words can be sweet to the soul like honey. Now think of a time when someone said something hurtful or condescending. Those kinds of words can have a damaging effect on those who receive them. Your words will either bring life or destroy it. God’s words have a healing effect on those who read them. That is how your words should be as well. Always strive to speak kind and gentle words to those you meet. You will never know the type of impact you will make.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
May my gentle words have a lasting impact on those I meet. Your words have given me life and I want to show how you have affected me. May I be a light to others. Amen.
