I was reminded today of the importance of a kind word.
A surprise hand-written note in the mailbox…with sweet encouragement…and a thank you. Completely unexpected—and deeply appreciated.
Just one way in which God works through us to reach others.
There is power in the words we speak. They can build up or they can tear down.
There have been so many destroying words in the past year. It’s time for more thoughtful, considerate, uplifting words.
Words that encourage.
Words that promote healing.
Words that show thanks and appreciation.
Words that reflect Jesus.
What if each day we showed kindness with the words we speak?
To our family and friends.
To our co-workers.
To the cashier and fellow shoppers.
To the stranger we cross paths with.
To those who inspire us and embolden us to make a difference in the world around us.
“Kind words are like honey—sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”
Proverbs 16:24 ( NLT)
May we choose our words wisely.
