A man finds joy in giving an apt reply– and how good is a timely word!
When something is said to someone else that encourages them or cheers them up, the speaker
also feels good and experiences joy. It is so much better to speak positively to others, and then
both benefit. We may never see the results of speaking a positive word into the life of a person,
but those words may have a profound effect on his / her life. And if we do see a change in the
countenance of that person, or see / hear of a difference in their life, we will be blessed and give
praise to Jesus for that opportunity to encourage.
When encouraging and uplifting words are spoken, the speaker will feel much better than when speaking
negativity into someone’s life also. The positive feeling will last for a prolonged time.
