An approprpiate word, spoken at just the right time, is like giving a bouquet of flowers to a thirsty soul. Look around you. It's April. Daffodils, Azaleas, Rhododendrons, and all sorts of flowering trees are putting on a show. How do you feel when you look at them. For me, they make me feel good, uplifted, and like God is giving me a precious gift. Now think of all the words you could use this month. Liken them to giving away a handful of April flowers by speaking forth encouragement, compassion, love, and hope by carefuly choosing each word before it is allowed to leave your mouth.
Proverbs 15:4 NIV The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life.
