As honey is to the bee so is a heart word to the soul.
Pleasant, kind and gracious words (a message of significant meaning) are like honey to the soul, they are sweet, delicious and delightful, bringing the power to embrace, soothe and heal. Intentional words of grace, hope and substantial purpose are food for the soul and bring healing, wholeness and restoration … giving life sustaining energy and health to our body.
Intentional means to purpose and plan concentrated and deliberate attention. With this thought in mind we should extend words that grow (put out shoots) into the very heart and soul of those in our world. The body requires energy to function and grow and it is sugar (whether converted or actual) that provides this energy to the body. Without this energy our body becomes listless and lethargic. So to our soul without the sweetness of life giving words becomes silent and despondent. It fails to thrive…..we fail to rise.
A healthy soul needs to be fed invigorating and rousing words in order for it to successfully prosper and arrive. As parents we are required to feed life-sustaining energy into the very heart and soul of our children. As spouses we can grow the heart and soul of our loved one through a concentrated, deliberate and gracious word. As a friend we can purpose and offer heart and soul words into our relationships. What intentional message will you give today?
Pleasant – satisfying, agreeable and enjoyable
Kind – indulgent, considerate and helpful
Gracious – benevolent, courteous, merciful and compassionate
