Monday's Devotional


Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Proverbs 16:24

"Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones."

Karl Marx devoted his entire life to writing about the demise of capitalism and the coming of communism. He, along with Friedrich Engels, wrote one of the most well-known political treatises in all of history, the Communist Manifesto. As evidence of his keen understanding of the great power of words, Marx is credited with saying: "Give me twenty-six lead soldiers and I will conquer the world!" Who are the twenty-six lead soldiers Marx referred to? They are the twenty six letters of the alphabet on a printing press.

All words have power and meaning (Isaiah 55:11). Jesus said we would be held accountable for even our idle words (Matthew 12:36–37), and Proverbs says that words have the power of life and death (18:21). So the question is not whether words have power. The question is, "What power am I releasing with my words?" If you have sent forth words that hurt, take them back with an apology and replace them with words that heal. The greatest untapped source of healing in life is "pleasant words."

You may not consider yourself a physician, but you should—as long as you are dispensing words of life.

Bro. Paul
