An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Skeleton Speech

(Pro 16:24 KJV) Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Do you have sick “bones” (6106)?  There are five times the Hebrew word is used in Proverbs and six times the English word is used.  At one end you can have rotten bones.  At the other end you have healing and refreshment that come to the bones.  Sick bones is not something I want.

I can surround myself with people who offer healing words.  I can use healing words myself.  My first reading was that this would come from others but on reading it again and checking the context I think it can also apply to our speech. 

So?  People should be healthier after they have been around us.
