Your Words

“Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees.” ~ Job 4:4

The saying, ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me,’ has been around for a long time and has been the response of countless kids. But oh wait, words do hurt, and words do encourage. You may never know the joy or the encouragement your words can bring to someone’s life; someone who just needs to hear a kind word.

Proverbs 25:11 says, “A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” Look for someone you can encourage today, even if you think they are your encourager. And together, we can begin to make the world a brighter place. Remember, we are the light because Jesus shines through us.

Thank You, Father, for all the Barnabas’ out there. Help us to encourage each other, and look for opportunities to say and do nice things for someone else. No man is an island, and no woman stands alone, but You have created us as social creatures, living together, and strengthening each other. Now LORD, lay your hand of mercy on the downtrodden and lift up those that are beaten down, liberate the ones who are being unjustly oppressed.

I thank You in Jesus’ name, amen.
