- The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord, but gracious words are pure. Proverbs 15:26
- Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:24
- And all spoke well of him and marveled at the gracious words that were coming from his mouth. And they said, “Is not this Joseph’s son?” Luke 4:22
We can strive for “gracious words,” yet God works grace even through those words we may try to fight or avoid. Thanks be to Christ Jesus our Lord!
