Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
Wow, this is truly one of those hidden verses in the Bible when you step back and read it. It is rich and the meaning of it is crystal clear.
As mentioned yesterday, people need encouragement. They will be encouraged by your pleasant, unsarcastic words. People might even ask if you’re joking, which makes it that much better.
There is healing in kind and pleasant words. And in a world filled with road rage, McDonald’s youtube violence, and all the class and warfare from our politicians, we need pleasant words towards one another.
Do kind words solve all the world’s ills? Hardly. But no one said we had to solve all the problems of the world today. But we can make a tiny difference in the people we run into. Today.
