Be Kind

I read about this heart-warming conversation between a boy and a mole:

“What do want to be when you grow up?” asked the horse.
“Kind” said the boy.
(Charlie Mackesy)

Isn’t that just so inspiring?

We can aspire to be kind:
Kind in our thoughts;
Kind in our actions;
Kind in our words.

Proverbs 12:18 tells us to use our words kindly:
“The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing”.

How can you use your words for healing this week? What area do you need to be kinder in?

Peace Makers

Jesus once said “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9)

Essentially, there are two types of people:
Peacemakers or troublemakers.

Which are you?

This Proverb below shows what a troublemaker does:
Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife – Proverbs 26: 20 – 21

Maybe you need to think about the words you use? Maybe you need to stop talking about others?

How can you be kinder with your words and actions today?

Sticks and stones

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but your silly words, will probably kill me.” A spin on a saying you’ve probably heard before.

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Proverbs 15:1 (http://bit.ly/2Pe7eBy)

The wise book of Proverbs tells us to watch our words! Language is a wonderful thing – choose your words correctly!

Why give an aggressive answer, when a gentle one is better?

Life can be cruel and unkind at times, so why add to it by speaking harshly?
