"A word aptly spoken..." "A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." (Proverbs 25:11, NIV) My thought for today: It makes a difference what we say and how we say what we say. So, I ask myself a few questions: What is my motive in the sharing? Will this really help another? Am I replying in the best context so the shoe fits? (Or is this appropriate?) Is it time to share this and is this the right place to share it? Does God want me to be the one to share it? Am I speaking truth from a loving heart? Have I prayed about what I am to share? Do I believe what I am sharing?
