Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Words can go a long way. A fine compliment, an earnest thank you, a sincere apology, a thoughtful encouragement… these gracious words can do a world of wonder for someone’s wellbeing.

King Solomon reminds us of that through the simple words of his wise proverb. Speaking is easy, and sharing some kind words doesn’t take long at all. It brings sweet joy to the recipient.

We all need encouragement. Since none of us are perfect, it helps to have a good chunk of grace thrown our way as we do our best to work, live, and have relationships. Know that polite comments and kind compliments are very helpful. And remember that Jesus offers the best grace of all. It’s sweet!
