A Spoonful Of Sugar

Do you ever try to mask the bitter taste of medicine with a fruit juice? The pleasant taste of something sweet makes it easier to swallow. Mary Poppins spoke realistically when she said: A spoonfull of sugar makes the medicine go down. It is also true when we have bad news to share. How often have you said: First let me give you the good news… When working with young children who experienced behavior problems, I was encouraged to first share something positive about the child. Sadly, I did not always remember to break the ice with kindness.


When we wisely use the soft approach and sugar coat our words with kindness they will build strong relationships. “A kind answer soothes angry feelings, but harsh words stir them up. Words of wisdom come from the wise, but fools speak foolishness (Proverbs 15:1-2 CEV).” My desire is to follow in the steps of godly women. “Her words are sensible, and her advice is thoughtful (Proverbs 31:26 CEV).” Spooned sugar may not always be accessible. Maybe we should carry sugar cubes wherever we go.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Pam you really come up with the most appropriate theme. I am sure when God created sugar, He must have said, Why don't i create sweetness. And He created Pam.
