Many subscribe (and I do too) to the saying, “actions speak louder than words” and so sadly, sometimes we just care less on saying “I love you” or “I miss you” or “You look wonderful” and other so called “cheesy”stuffs. A hug will definitely bring us far but our words would bring color to the moment. Let’s not disregard the magical effects of every sweet and genuine word we say otherwise, we are missing one of our essential values and thus, not operating at our fullest potential! Why is that so? If our “action” is more than enough to express our love, how is it then that in Proverbs 10:11 says, “The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life.”? A FOUNTAIN OF LIFE! There’s something in our words that our “actions” would be incomplete without them.
Let’s also take Proverbs 16:24 into spotlight “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.” Have you tried encouraging someone who is so gloomy and his face lit up the moment you said the “magic” words? That’s right – it’s a supernatural thing! So let’s take every opportunity to express our love and appreciation to our family and all our loved ones this coming Christmas season (and the rest of our lives). Remember that this season is all about LOVE! While you have the opportunity to do so, grab it!
The time is clicking and it will never wait for you; it will never stop for you. Let your courage take the upper hand. Create life and say the words! Come on, just say it!
