proverbs 16 scripture sweet to the soul

May encouraging words flow from our lips,
the aftertaste sweet to the soul,
not bitter words, that sour and spoil,
their destruction taking its toll.
So what shall we choose, sour or sweet?
Each day brings a new opportunity,
choosing the sweet will always be wise,
bringing life, peacefulness, and unity.

May we always choose words sweet to the soul.
