Use Your Words To Heal Others (Proverbs 12, 16, 18)

When has someone hurt you with their words? How did you respond? How did you want to respond?
When have your words hurt someone? What did you do to try to make it right?
Why do you think words can be so powerful?
Read the following proverbs. For each one, write down one truth it teaches about words:
  • Proverbs 12:6
  • Proverbs 12:18
  • Proverbs 16:24
  • Proverbs 18:6-8
  • Proverbs 18:20-21
What kind of words are healing and positive? Think of a time when someone else used their words to encourage you. What did they do that was so helpful?
What verses or passages from the Bible have been positive and uplifting for you in the past? How have these words been healing for you?
Who do you know that needs to hear words that are healing? If you could share a healing Bible verse with one other person, who would it be? What would you share?
Who do you know that has been hurt by someone's words (maybe yours?) How can you use pleasant words to bring healing to them?
Where will you go this week that you can bring light with the way you talk? What encouraging and invigorating words will you share?
What words from God do you most need to hear today?
Find those words in His Word and keep them with you.
