The LORD detests the thoughts of the wicked,
This verse equates thoughts with words. We need to take our thoughts captive and use gracious words to honor and please the Lord.
Gracious words are a honeycomb,
Here we see that gracious words are healing. How often do we damage and destroy with our words? Are we using them to heal, to build up our friends and loved ones? Our enemies?
Now that we are half way through our 31 Days of Peace, I want to encourage you to review the verses we’ve studied so far. What do they say to you about creating an environment of peace by controlling the use of our mouths? What practical ways can you use words to further the peace in your home? I encourage you to choose a verse and begin to recite it to yourself, I personally like Proverbs 16:24 above, to help you begin to develop the habit of speaking kindly and carefully to your loved ones.
