Healing Words

Today's reading: Proverbs 12:1-28

My attention was drawn, once again, to the many verses dealing with our speech as I took in Proverbs 12. What comes out of our mouth is powerful, and we see that over and over again throughout the verses in Proverbs. That being the case, how much better is it to harness that power and use it for good? That's precisely what these words in verse 18 conveyed to me, "the tongue of the wise brings healing."

There's nothing quite like being on the receiving end of kind, encouraging words--right? So let's be intentional about using our words for good. Who can you offer encouragement, healing, building up or support to this week? Tami
