Pleasant Words



Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, 
and health to the bones. 
Proverbs 16:24

The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination 
to the LORD: but the words of the pure are 
pleasant words
~Proverbs 15:26

Our words also can be as wounds:

 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. ~Proverbs 18:8

This verse is even repeated a second time:

 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. ~Proverbs 26:22

God's Word has a lot to tell us about what we say! 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. ~Proverbs 18:21 

  For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: ~1 Peter 3:10

Even in a world surrounded by unpleasant words, we have God's holy Word that is pure, pleasant Words to meditate on.

  "Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that
 put their trust in him."
~Proverbs 30:5

Perhaps you can be a blessing to someone today, by speaking pleasant words.
