(Proverbs 12:25 KJV) Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.
What is a “good” (2896a) “word” (8005)? The word good in Hebrew has all of the uses and nuances of the word in English. The two most common translations in both the KJV and NASB are “good” and “better”. I would imagine it would include a word of advice, a genuine compliment or even a correction.
We have the ability to make the lives of others better by what we say.
So? I need to work on this. I tend to be a realist with a sense of humor. Often I am around dreamers with a very parochial understanding of funny. I could be more sensitive to their sensitivity.
