A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
Words impact our lives. They can make us laugh, cry, ponder, and change. The words we speak mold our children, and influence our friends.
They bring life, or they bring death.
My words have not always been golden, there are times that I have mispoke, or maybe not spoke at all. There have been so many times that I've missed the golden opportunity. And, sometimes I wish for golden words to be spoken to me, for they are like honey that drips through my heart with sweetness.
Today I want to encourage you to speak words that are golden apples. Infuse the people around you, your friends and family, with the brightness, sweetness, and richness of gold. Don't hide your gold, for those around you may be craving it's beauty.
God has fitly spoken words that are like golden apples to each one of us. He claims us as the apple of His eye. He intentionally chose us to be His--forever. He has lavished us with a rich inheritance that is available now. He has crowned us with gold and pronounced us to be His Bride. He has repeated love to us, and given us power to do the same to others. He has blessed us with life, opportunity, hope, courage, bravery, and so much more.
You hold the golden apple in your heart and hand, use it wisely!
