Proverbs 12:25 

Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.




If a person is anxious about something, he will feel weighed down. But any word of encouragement lightens one’s load. Therefore we should seek to be encouragers, like Barnabas, rather than doom and gloom purveyors, like Israel’s ten unbelieving spies. This is one of many proverbs that simply makes a psychological observation without giving an explicit command.

We people of God, commissioned to develop prudent tongues, would do well to study, sweat, pray, and bleed over our methods of telling people what is both utterly   necessary and bitterly painful.


Memory Verse: James 4:17
