Gracious Words

Scripture

“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”  ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Observation

Gracious words nourish the soul and strengthens the body. 

Application

Gracious has a foundation in grace. As we have received grace from the Lord, we should be gracious to others. Harsh words reveal a heart that is not at peace and is wrestless. When we know Christ he sets our heart at rest and grace flows from a heart that has experienced his forgiveness and peace. 

Prayer

Lord, set my heart at rest so I may speak words of grace that will be “sweet to the soul and health for the body”.
