Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24 NKJV
Oh, how our souls are often in need of words that are sweet,
for it’s so very easy in life to have thoughts of defeat.
Finding words of encouragement, perhaps from a Psalm,
will go a long way in helping to keep our thoughts calm.
And the words that we ourselves speak should always be trained
to be gracious and uplifting, as God has ordained.
Pleasant words, kind words, are words that will nourish.
By them, the lives of others and our own lives will flourish.
P. A. Oltrogge
