Prov. 16:24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. There is so much to-do about words today. Our freedom of speech and the right to say what you want is being challenged on every side. Schools are banning certain words so as not to offend or hurt someones feelings. College campuses are turning into battle grounds over words. They even have safe zones, where certain words are not allowed. I am all for speaking truth, using our words to build up, rather than to tear down others. Words are powerful and can bring life or death, peace or violence, encouragement or discouragement. This is why it is so important that you and I speak words of life. We need to fill our mouths with God's Word, which brings life, and use our tongue to change the negative things around us. Speaking a kind, encouraging word in due season, can change the atmosphere around us. It can bring hope to an otherwise hopeless situation. Pleasant words can minister to people who are desperately looking for something positive in a very negative world.
