March 25–Proverb A Day–Day 25

Apples of Gold in Settings of SilverToday’s Proverb:
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold, In settings of silver. Proverbs 25:11 [NKJV]

Today’s Thought:
Words are so important.
A spoken word can have lasting effects, because when it is released into someone’s life it can either build them up or tear them down.
Therefore,before we speak, we should always take the time to consider our words as valuable and use them skillfully.
If we do this, our words will sound beautiful,and be treasured.
If our words are chosen carefully, and spoken at just the right time, they could be used to change someone’s life for the better.

Gold AppleToday’s Action:

Today: Imagine a beautiful silver bowl full of golden apples, then choose to speak words that will reflect that image to others.

Today:

  • I will take time to think before I speak
  • I will choose my words carefully
  • I will do my best to speak only good words that build up
  • I will pray that my speech will be fitly spoken
  • I will envision each word as a “gold apple” going forth into a “setting of silver”
