That’s not the easiest thing to hear when you’ve just yelled at your children, spewed at a co-worker, or are spilling complaints about your messy family…
I know as humans we have our moments of frustration, but as daughter’s of the King we need to set our standard to have a vocabulary of honey. Honey is good for so many things.
Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. – Proverbs 16:24
When this verse was written, in Israel, honey was a rare and desired treat. There were no bee keepers or Whole Food stores in which to buy raw, local honey. One had to stumble upon it or know where to look.
I feel like some days in Omaha, Nebraska sweet, honey-like “Words of Life” are a rare and desired treat.
Let’s change that. Words bring healing or death. I want mine to always bring healing. I realized today that if I think an encouraging word and don’t say it, that too, does not promote healing and benefits no one. May your words be gracious like a honeycomb today.
Tables 5-10 bring food to Hearts on 3/20/12.
