“Let everyone see that you are gentle and kind.” Philippians 4:5

In ancient Jewish tradition, children were given honey when they began studying the Word of the LORD. It was believed that if children actually tasted the sweet honey, they would more fully realize that God's Word is as sweet as honey (Psalm 119:103).

You've probably heard the old phrase, "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." And yet, we often criticize those in the church and outside of the church with words that taste an awful lot more like vinegar than they do honey.

Are our attitudes full of gentleness and kindness? Do our words reflect God's Word - as sweet as honey? Or are we too quick to judge and speak harshly when we're offended?

Final Thought

Showing Kindness will cause us to be seen in the eyes of others as being attractive. If we really want to reach out and win the world around us, then we must melt it and not hammer it!

Prayer

Father, help me to have a kind attitude toward everyone - even people I don't understand or agree with. Help me to view Your Word like it's as sweet as honey and to make my own words sweet to the world around me. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
