Proverbs 16:24 (NIV)
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to our bones.
The words that proceed out of our mouths are like seeds that will grow no matter what. The mind is like a fertile ground and will process any seed that is planted into it. Farmers go to the field with good seeds because they want a healthy and bountiful harvest. Likewise, ungracious or bad seeds can be planted and the outcome will be weeds or thorns which will destroy the good crops. Can you imagine, that you can bring healing and nourishment to someone’s soul with your kind words today? You can save a life, restore hope, bring peace, cultivate joy, build nations, fight the enemy with the power of your words. Try it.
Please help me O Lord to always remember the value of life so I can learn to uplift others no matter the hurt and pain inside my heart. Be light to my ways and all I do, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
