Proverbs 16:24 says; Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Proverbs 15:4 in the Amplified says; A soothing tongue [speaking words that build up and encourage] is a tree of life…
Words are indeed gifts, with our words we bring healing to the soul. With our words we build others up or tear them down.

May our words help those who are stumbling to stand in faith. May our words bring healing and hope!
