Sometimes people want to say something to a friend, but chicken out at the last minute because they think it might be silly or embarrassing. Often, they later regret not saying it. What does God think about these situations?

Proverbs 25:11 states: “A word spoken at the right time is like golden apples on a silver tray.” We all know the value of gold and silver, even if we can’t afford them. We also know how sweet apples taste. How valuable and how sweet to our souls would apples of gold be? Certainly, they would have great value, especially when served to us on fine silver.

Say What You Need to Say While You Have the Chance

say what you need to sayThe point of this proverb is that our words, spoken in the right circumstances, are of immeasurable value. We are to speak with purpose to those in whom we’d like to invest. Some of us may have younger teammates who have followed us in certain seasons of life and possibly throughout our entire life.

We need to tell them what we want for them; challenge them to godly excellence, and call them to be followers of Christ with great character. We can build a tradition of vigilance by speaking carefully chosen words to those who follow us.

We can all think of others who have been important to us. We need to express our love and appreciation for them as well. The opportunity will soon be gone. Let’s not miss our chance to serve some golden apples on a beautiful silver platter. Think about it.

So, What’s The Play Call?

  1. Is there someone in your life who doesn’t know how much you appreciate him or her?
  2. Is there someone in your life who God has called you to challenge?
  3. What keeps you from saying what you need to say?

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.” – Psalm 19:14

I solemnly charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who is going to judge the living and the dead, and because of His appearing and His kingdom: Proclaim the message; persist in it whether convenient or not; rebuke, correct, and encourage with great patience and teaching. For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will multiply teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new. They will turn away from hearing the truth and will turn aside to myths. But as for you, be serious about everything, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” – 2 Timothy 4
