Recently some friends and I were discussing The Five Love Languages. The husband is “Words of Affirmation” and “Acts of Service.” His wife, who does not have those as her primary language, both set the coffee maker the other morning for it to be ready for our early morning meeting, and left a very encouraging note for him to read. Wow! that hit him on both languages. I asked if he got it, and of course he did because it was love communicated by doing something for him and the words that said so. The proverb today reminds us that words matter, and can be a tree of life.
