“sweetness to the soul”- Weekend Words

“The reward of wisdom is a better and happier life.”


Proverbs, Wisdom Day by Day

Proverbs 16:24


“Gracious speech is like clover honey—
    good taste to the soul, quick energy for the body.” The Message 

“Pleasant words are a honeycomb:
sweet to the taste and health to the body.”    Holman Christian Standard Bible 


Proverbs is perhaps the most practical book in the Bible. These words of wisdom grew out of the common experiences of human life.

The teachers of ancient times were eager to share what they had learned about life. Their insights helped them in their daily living and their relationships.

The reward of wisdom is a better and happier life.”

Spiritual Formation Bible, published by Zondervan
