“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.” Proverbs 16:24
Sweetness to the soul and health to the body. That is the power of grace and to speak kind and loving words to others. They are sweet to our soul and give life to our body also when we show ourselves respect and care. The Lord is a Mighty God full of grace and mercy and He calls us to the same.
We are to be a light to the world. To be a candle on a hill. We are not to hide our light and, in the end, hide who God is. We are to share Him and let His hope shine through us. Everything we say and do is to be for His glory and honor. We are to be sweetness like a honeycomb to others through our speech and to show mercy through our actions. God is good all the time. He is an Awesome God, ready to give life to those who ask, to give hope to those in need, and show His power to those who refuse to listen.
In all of this the Lord asks us to be gracious. To speak with kindness and to show mercy. Because like the verse above gracious words are sweetness to the soul and health to the body. They lift us up and show God’s love. They bring us out of our darkness and into His light. We are God’s children, so go out there and be one of His lights today. 🙂
