Proverbs 16:24 NKJV — Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
…are like a honeycomb,”
How true this is.
For what one of us can not attest to the truth of a word spoken well bringing healing or joy or wholeness to our hearts?
Words can hold such meaning.
Truth, kindness, love can all be communicated through words.
The best, most pleasant words ever spoken are those which speak the good news of the Gospel.
The words of truth, those of the Bible, are the most valuable words of all.
“Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.”
What could possibly be sweeter than hearing about salvation through Christ Jesus?
What could bring more soundness to one than security of life in Christ?
Truly, those who are called by the name of the Lord have such pleasant words to share.
Words of hope.
Words of truth.
Words of encouragement.
Let us, this day be thoughtful of our words.
Let’s spread a little sweetness this week through pleasant words.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You so much for Your Word. Nothing is sweeter than Your truth. Please continue to pour into my heart and mind Your Word. Please help it to reside within me that I might share it. Lord, please fill my mouth with Your pleasant words. Please keep a watch over my lips, that I might speak only things which would edify those who listen. May my life glorify Your name. Thank You. Amen.
