“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver”. Proverbs 25:11.
Ever spoke the wrong thing at the wrong time to someone and then wondered, “where did that come from?” and then wished you could have just kept silent? Sometimes our emotions run ahead of our spirit man, and we speak our thoughts and not God’s will. But then there are times when we say the exact right thing, at the exact right time, and know that God is speaking through us. Our words (which should be God’s word) when spoken obediently, in His time and not ours, is like a work of art. It’s golden!
Lord, give us wisdom in our speech.
Elder Steve Smith
