“Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and healing to the bones.”
If you want to make a difference in someone’s life today, it does not get anymore complicated than that. Maybe you feel like you don’t have the money or resources to make a large impact in the world.
Be encouraged. You have the ability and opportunity right now to lift someone’s spirit.
“The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.”
Please do not underestimate the impact your words can have in the lives of the people around you. That old nursery rhyme about “words will never hurt me” sounds nice, but words can wound in ways that sticks and stones never could.
However, our words can be used as a fountain of life and there many dry, weary souls in need of nourishment.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Today, will you intentionally encourage and uplift those around you?
