As I read through Proverb 16 there is so much to take away. Good verses evil, wisdom and learning not to be foolish, and we all long not to be foolish right! Then you have pride, destruction, and learning how to humble yourself. However, there is one verse that really sticks out to me.
24 Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
In a day and age when we are so health conscious we can remember that we have the answer to health and healing. Not only for our bodies, but for our souls as well. Our lives are surrounded by hurting and brokenness. We may be hurting as well. David had to encourage himself at times. WE HAVE THE ANSWER. Speak to your soul words of healing. You never know what a kind word can do to change someones thoughts for the day. Proverbs 18:21 says Life and Death are in the tongue.
Reading this verse took me back to one of my kids caring around their little "poo bear" or other wise know as Winnie the Pooh. He would not go anywhere without it.
We all know that Winnie the Pooh cared so much about Honey and wanted everyone to know about it. He would have dreams about honey, visions of honey, and loved to be covered in honey. He also liked to share his honey with all of his friends. Just like in the stories of Pooh, this Honey needs to be shared.
Let’s break it down!
· Our Something to say
· Our words of wisdom

· Heals wounds and boost the immunity
· Your bones
· The church
I pray that today you share the honey that God has placed in you with someone else. Let's share kind words with someone today. Let's speak to the emotions, desires and passions of the people that God has place around us and start healing the bones and body.
Have a great Day :)
