Proverbs 15:23 – A person finds joy in giving an apt reply and how good is a timely word!

Gold_and_Silver_ApplesHave you ever heard the phrase; “Thanks I needed that?” Or have you ever told someone that? Usually we receive or give an encouraging word when we least expect it. I’ve been going through something and needed encouragement when out of nowhere someone, friend or stranger, will say something that makes a big difference that changed my whole outlook. Those words were like drinking a cool glass of water when thirsty. It was like regaining strength after dealing with a sickness.

Proverbs 25:11 – A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

What an illustration. Imagine a gold apple in the midst of silver ones. That apple is going to stand out and be noticed before the silver ones are noticed. So are the words we say when they fit a situation that needs encouragement or instruction.
