Proverbs 12:25-Heaviness in the heart of man makes it droop, but a good word makes it glad.
Proverbs 12:25-GNT-Worry can rob you of happiness, but kind words will cheer you up.
A good Word! Is there one on your lips today? There is one in the Word of God that is able to cheer up and make glad the heavy hearts of mankind.
Words are important for they can either produce good or evil. They can either hurt or heal, comfort, mislead or redirect.
Everyone of us is responsible for the words that comes out of out mouth, be it good or evil over ourselves or others.
Do you know someone that is discouraged or burdened down? Someone whose heart is aching or may be in grief?
People of God, you and I can help a brother or sister whose heart is heavy and burdened down by imparting kind words that we know will cheer up them up.
If we could be honest for a moment, we all can admit that a "heavy heart" visits all of us from time to time and we know that it is a good word from God that brings about the comfort, peace and assurance that is necessary to make our heart merry again.
The call today is to "encourage one another" for we all could use some encouragement at times. 1 Thessalonians 5:11-Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Words can either build up or tear down. What we say can either lift up or tear down.
As Christians, we are being called to speak "good words" that build up our sisters and brothers and not those that tears them down.
The best words of all are what we call the "GOOD NEWS", the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the Word of God that causes us to encourage, exhort and edify each other. It is the word of God that sustains us.
A kind word of hope spoken to a hurting heart cost us nothing, therefore when the opportunity presents itself, we MUST do it!
We are reminded in this text that our words can have positive or negative affect in the lives of those we encounter on a daily basis.
Proverbs 18:21-Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
Have you ever been in need of encouragement and someone said something to you that lifted your heavy heart and caused you to believe in yourself, God's promises for your future and how great you felt after your conversation with that person?
Well, this is the same exchange that we are being asked to render to someone we may or may not know that has a heavy heart on today.
Proverbs 10:11-MV The mouth of a good person is a deep, life-giving well, but the mouth of the wicked is a dark cave of abuse.
A good word! Do you have one to share on today? I have no doubt for the pages of the Bible is full of them.
A Good Word! Share it today for the lost, wounded in heart and contrite in spirit need to hear what God is saying to them in this hour in which we live.
Proverbs 2:13-To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
Remember, a "GOOD WORD" makes the heart happy and not heavy.
