Do you like apples? I do. They are sweet, and good for you. Like all the fruits and vegetables God makes, apples are good to eat to help our bodies stay well.
That is the way our words are supposed to be. Words are very powerful food, and when they are sweet, especially when they are Scriptures from the Word of God, they help us and others stay healthy.
The LORD is the One Who helps us know what to say and what not to say, and how to say it at just the right time. Knowing what His Word says and saying it is one of the very best ways we can be sure that we are speaking sweet words that nourish others, like apples!
God says many things about words in the Bible and even compares them to apples.
Proverbs 25:11 (AMP), where He says, “A word fitly spoken and in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”
People like sweet things, and all of us like to hear words that make us feel good. Ask the LORD to help you speak only good, truthful words to help others know more about how much He loves them!
