Sweeter Than Honey
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones (Proverbs 16:24). In this way, “The hearts of the wise make . . . their lips promote instruction”. Words can destroy, they can be destructive when the heart of the user’s are hard. The use of prudent words and reasoned tongues, not overreacting or speaking harshly, no matter the issue is wise. We all can benefit by gracing our opinions and thoughts with godly and prudent sweetness. In Solomon’s words, “To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue”.
