Proverbs 12:25 says, Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. We all know what it's like when you're having a bad day, when you're stressed or anxious - it weighs you down like a heavy backpack. It makes it hard to put one foot in front of the other and move from where you are. Anxiety is like that - it makes you feel heavy and weighed down. It makes it hard to move forward. But kind words can help lift you up, they encourage you. Sometimes critical words flow more naturally than kind ones. But if we are led by the Holy Spirit, if we read the Word, pray, and worship etc., kind words will come more easily. When you see someone who is struggling, think about what you would like someone to say to you if you were in their shoes. This week be generous with kind words and cheer people up rather than tearing them down.
