Read Proverbs 12
(Ponder Verse 25)
“Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.”
1) The Proverb About A Good Word – (Good) = That which is considered to be profitable, positive, pleasant, pious.
2) The Power Of A Good Word – “but a good word … maketh it (heart) glad.”
The idea here is that the right kind of words have the power to gladden or encourage one’s heart. Both the giver and the receiver.
Words are more powerful than we realize. Consider Verse 18.
Bottom line: One who is skillful and spiritual with the use of their words accomplishes much good.
Can you think of someone that you could and should speak a good word to? Do it right now!
