The Gift of Kind Words by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The Gift of Kind Words by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb,
sweet to the soul, and health to the
bones (Proverbs 16:24).

The right words are better than gifts of money,
and all earthly gifts. Read our opening verse
again; it talks about kind words, gracious and
pleasant words: they cheer you up, and bring out the
best in you. They bring health.

They bring health.
You may give someone nice gifts, but if the
words you give to that one aren’t as nice, then your
gifts are worthless. The wars in our world are caused
by words, and peace comes by words. When Jacob
sent gifts ahead of him to his brother, Esau, who had
sworn to kill him because of his (Jacob’s) deception, the
gifts didn’t mean much to him. It didn’t stop him from
advancing towards Jacob to attack him, even after he
had seen the gifts.

However, the moment he heard the voice of
Jacob, as Jacob addressed him and spoke to him
peaceably and lovingly from his heart, it disarmed Esau;
his heart melted. Isn’t that what the Bible says? “A soft
answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up
anger” (Proverbs 15:1). A kind word will bring healing
and work wonders.

Don’t speak grievous, hurtful or hateful words;
speak kindly always, from your heart. Use kind words,
not flattery. Flattery comes from the lips, and they have
no life, no matter how sweet they sound. Flattery is
deceptive; don’t flatter with your words. Don’t be like
the one David described in Psalm 55:21. He said, “The
words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were
they drawn swords.”

Words come from the heart; they reveal your
personality and you can’t hide them. Therefore, fill your
heart with God’s Words, for out of that abundance,
you’ll speak words that heal, lift, encourage, bless and
comfort others.

CONFESSION
My thoughts, words, and actions in my daily walk and
relationship with others are guided by God’s Word.
I’m completely yielded to the Holy Spirit who causes
my speech at all times to be gracious, pleasant and
winsome, seasoned with salt, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
