Think of a time when someone said a kind word to you – how did it make you feel? If you were feeling down, it might have lifted your spirits or comforted you. If you had made a mistake, the grace shown to you by another would have been a huge weight off your shoulders.

Proverbs 16:24 says that “Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul.” The words we speak have more power than we know! We have the capacity to build people up with words of love and grace or tear them down with condemnation and slander. We all know the pain that a hurtful or insensitive remark can bring, and it’s likely that these mean words that have been spoken to us throughout our lives still linger in our minds. Let’s not be the source of pain and discouragement to another – may we never bring harm to others with our words.

Instead, let us be intentional about the words that we say, knowing that a simple word of encouragement can mean all the difference to someone going through a difficult time. And just like how honey brings sweetness and nourishment to our bodies, may the words we say be as sweet – bringing life and healing to the souls of those around us!
