(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

So what can help us build the habit of speaking gracious words?

Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:24

The other day, I was sitting with a friend talking. She just had a baby, so it’s difficult for her to plan anything (like sleep). We were talking about studying our Bibles and in this baby season she is just not going to have regular study time. Instead, she printed out the love passage, and she reads and meditates on that off and on throughout her day. I thought it was a brilliant solution to a challenging season of life.

love passage in Bible

We need God’s word to soften our hearts so that what comes out of us is gracious and loving.

What scripture could you meditate on regularly that would make a difference in how you speak to others? Is there one that would be particularly helpful in loving your spouse?
