Proverbs 16:21  The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction. (NIV)

Proverbs 16:24 Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. (NIV)

Two verses stand between complementary truths. The common idea is gracious words. 

Take a look at verse 21 from The Message: 

A wise person gets known for insight; 
gracious words add to one’s reputation.
And verse 24:
Gracious speech is like clover honey— 
good taste to the soul, quick energy for the body.

Facts are friends. We hear too few facts today and too much opinion. Facts and truth communicated with graciousness are persuasive. 

I heard a guy say, “When I’m abrasive, I’m never persuasive.” This catchy saying is helpful. Let’s help people learn it and practice what it says. 

Gracious words promote instruction. 

Gracious words promote healing. 

Today is a good day to practice gracious words. 

If you cannot say it graciously, do you need to say it at all? 

This is a point worth pondering. 

This is a point worth practicing. 

I will practice promote instruction and healing through gracious words.

Our Father, I need your help. Remove critical, hurtful, snarky, sarcastic speech from my mouth. Fill my mind with gracious words. My communication shaped by your grace flow through the words I speak, write, and think. Amen.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 8:12-18

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
