Verse of the Day - Day 290

Apples of Gold - Proverbs 25:11

By

Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

Proverbs 25:11
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Apples of Gold

The first time I read this verse, I recall thinking, Wow, how beautiful ... though I'm not exactly sure what it means.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary explains it this way: "An appropriate and properly timed word—which sometimes may be a rebuke—can be attractive and valuable, like gold apples set against a silver sculpture or carving, or like a gold earring or other ornament."
