Today, I realized that we should be saying something positive about each other daily. Ask yourself: Am I usually talking about what’s wrong with others or what’s right? Am I primarily positive or negative?
Proverbs 10:11 describes the mouth of the righteous as “a well of life.” The tongue of the righteous “choice silver” and the lips of the righteous feed many.” A person who is righteous—right with God deep inside—and words that will nourish and refresh others.
Like our Savior, who spoke life-giving words, we can encourage and lift the spirits of others today by what we say about them. A well-chosen word can speak volumes.
