Small Kindness

January 11, 2018


.
It was only a kindly word,
And a word that was lightly spoken,
Yet not in vain, for it stilled the pain
Of a heart that was nearly broken. —ODB
.
Proverbs 12:25An anxious, heavy heart weighs one down, but a kind word cheers up.

From NetBible Pro 12:25

  • Kind[02896] = good, pleasant, merry
  • * the good kind word promotes life – bringing joy instead of heaviness
