Proverbs Challenge, Day 12

“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.”

Anxiety and depression are major health issues in today’s world.  Here in this wise saying of Solomon is advice on how we can impact these health risks with a simple prescription:  “a good word”.  Perhaps we should reflect today on the blessings a kind word spoken in season can bring.  Maybe there is someone you know who is depressed, feeling like no one knows or cares about their situation.  Maybe you can have a positive impact simply by speaking a word or two of encouragement to them.
