What Does The Bible Say About Kind Words?

Credit :

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.
