The wise in heart are called discerning,
and gracious words promote instruction.

Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent,
but folly brings punishment to fools.

The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent,
and their lips promote instruction.

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Proverbs 16:21-24

    Thanks for the idea for Children’s sermon! I love sharing unexpected things from the Bible…to encourage exploration of God’s word. Today I’ll talk about honey.

    Sweet, sweet verse …

    And a very careful one is on my radar this Sabbath

    The design is beautiful. This just goes along with my bible study “Power of a Woman’s Words”. It talks about how powerful our words can be. We must be conscious of the tone of voice, infliction, correctly chosen words. Sometimes it is better not to say anything.

    Have a blessed Sunday :)
