We say things we later regret all the time. We get caught up in our own ways and forget about others.
The more we focus on ourselves the more we forget about others needs. Instead of saying something we regret, we should try and respect others and say something kind and compassionate.
Doing something kind for someone in their life can bring memories to cherish for a lifetime. It can be one thoughtful thing that is said that can change a person's day for the better. The Bible shows us how kind words are commended, and what they do to others.
Below are Bible verses about kind words:
"Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear."
"Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body."
1 Thessalonians 5:11
"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."
"Your words have upheld him who was stumbling, and you have made firm the feeble knees."
"To make an apt answer is a joy to a man, and a word in season, how good it is!"
"A fool's mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul."
"Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person."
