"Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body" (Proverbs 16:24).
Put another way, speaking positive, speaking well and having great things to say, are welcoming to people. It should comes as no surprise that just about everyone loves when people have worthwhile things to say, especially when a situation dictates otherwise. Look, I raise my hand high when it comes to the times I have spoken out of turn and the times I should have stayed mum instead of opening my big mouth. In those situations I had to learn the hard way that silence is powerful.
When you're an open person with an opinion it's easy to spew things off without thinking, but the school of hard-knocks has taught me otherwise and today I'm still learning when to speak and when to remain quiet. I hope to always be in a learning posture. I don't mind that at all. In fact I welcome it, we all should. And we should also welcome the fact that it's wise and good business to speak when it's appropriate and choose our words wisely. Makes sense, right?
All I'm trying to convey in this blog post is, as the scripture says, 'good words are sweet to the body and soul', which means when we are in a state of internal goodness, that's what's going to come out of our mouths. And good words are good for our health.
