“An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.”  Proverbs 12:25

The movie world seems currently intent on producing movies about superheroes, the main characters having some superpower.  Perhaps that is why, on reading this passage, it occurred to me that while I don’t have ready access to invisibility, super strength, the ability to fly or to “leap tall buildings in a single bound,” I nonetheless have ready access to a superpower – the kind word.  Using the superpower of the kind word, I can make someone’s day, and, as a bonus, make my own.

Well, okay, this is a superpower we all have.  And technically, if we all have it, I guess it can’t be a true superpower.  But still, we have the power, it is pretty neat, and we ought to exercise it frequently.
