Gracious words

Last night I was meditating on walking worthy of the Lord (Ephesians 4:1)

Luke 4:22 says that they marveled at His gracious words.  1 Peter 2:3 says that the Lord is gracious. Are you a gracious person?  Gracious means: courteous, kind, pleasant, considerate, thoughtful; friendly, amiable (warm).

The way we talk to another reflects what we truly think about them in our heart.  In order to be a gracious person, we have to dwell on gracious thoughts.

Proverbs 16:24 says, “Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.”

  1. Just a great article. If all believers in the world were this way, we would increase more to the fold.
