The book of Proverbs in the Bible contains strong, pithy sayings about the life of faith. They give us counsel about all kinds of things, like our attitude, money, and emotions. This proverb reminds us about the goodness of kind words.
Kind words are like honey – sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
In what sense are kind words good for the soul and the body?
Who in my life has spoken to me words like this?
To whom am I speaking words like this?
God of kindness, whose word leads us to repentance, to faith, and to discover all the blessings you have for us, bring us again and again back to your word, the Bible, and to a relationship with the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ. We pray in his name. Amen.
