STOP AND THINK – One kind word can warm three winter months. (Japanese Proverb)

We all know what it’s like when someone encourages us. We can bask in that kind word for a long time. It’s a great joy, then, when we do the same favor for someone else. Think about those whom you could encourage with just a single word or phrase to uplift them. You will be the better for it, and so will they.

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up (Proverbs 12:25).
