Like soft sweet grapes that are food for our physical body, our words should nourish the soul of others with a softness, kindness, and encouragement. Be gentle with your words by offering helpful and encouraging words.
What I took away from reading and writing about 2 Chronicles 30 is that leaders can make a big difference when they show respect to their people and support opportunities for spiritual nourishment. One example to follow is Hezekiah in verses 18-22 who prayed for others and offered encouragement.
A major part of the Christian journey is walking alongside others and receiving the spiritual nourishment needed. We have the opportunity each day to read blogs that offer words of encouragement and conversation from friends all over the world. This video is about what words can do and the hope that our words will nourish souls: Words – Hawk Nelson.
