“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” is the familiar advice that girlfriends and wives have been given over the years. Does it work well? I’m sure that it has certainly been the recipe for success for some. Home cooking might be enough to attract someone but is it sufficient to keep a marriage sweet? That would be highly unlikely!

Another way to woo is to, ‘whisper sweet nothings’ but have your words changed with marriage. Has your tone of voice become a little too abrupt or harsh? Words are more powerful than you might think, they have the power to build up or tear down, they have can be constructive or destructive. The Bible tells us that they have the power of life and death! So what are your words doing to your marriage? Do they need a little sweetening?

Words Like Honey

Proverbs 16:24 NIV
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Gracious words are kind, considerate and loving. Does that describe the way that you speak to each other? Words like that are not just sweet, but they bring healing. They make you feel better after a rough day at work or a tough day with the kids.

Proverbs 18:20 NLV
Wise words satisfy like a good meal; the right words bring satisfaction.

Are you sometimes unwise with what you say and how you say it? Another proverb tells us that a wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears hers down with her own hands. Words can do a lot of damage too! Wise words, on the other hand, bring that lovely feeling of satisfaction and contentment.

When you bake a cake, you choose the ingredients that will work well together and make it sweet. Choose to use good ingredients in your marriage!
