Healing Power

Today's reading: Proverbs 12:18

“There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing” (Proverbs 12:18).

There are a number of things I like about Proverbs 12:18--the descriptions used and how they immediately bring clear and understandable images to mind, the message conveyed of the power of our words and how they can be harmful or restorative, and lastly, the point that a wise person will choose to offer words (in content and in tone) that bring healing.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 being low and 10 being high), where would you rate yourself with regard to using "healing words" in the past week? How can and will you improve this number going forward? Who in your circle of influence needs to hear some "healing words" from you? Tami
