Tell Me Something Good

There is this amazing emphasis on words in the Bible, especially in Proverbs 18. Which pretty much crushes the notion that talk is cheap. In some ways, yes, but words can hurt or heal.

But don’t you ever get tired of hearing all the bad? Do you want to hear something encouraging? These verses in Proverbs note how negative talk effects people and promote the importance of positive words.

It’s not asking you to be unaware or dumb to the fact that bad things are taking place. It’s just saying it’s important to hear something good, some time! For a change of pace, tell me something good!

Proverbs 18:20

Wise words satisfy like a good meal;
    the right words bring satisfaction.
