“The wise in heart are called discerning, and pleasant words promote instruction.” Prov. 16:21
Many of us have heard the saying, “A child may forget what you say or do, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”
The scripture above contains a truth of God that is as real as the Law of Gravity: “pleasant words promote instruction.”
Being gracious to others isn’t always easy or come naturally, but it’s God’s way of doing things.
The challenge today is to extend God’s grace to others–whether they deserve it or not. After all, He has been gracious to us.
“He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.” Ps. 103:10
