Proverbs 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

I read somewhere that in those days it was a custom at a feast to have a silver basket filled with golden yellow apples and they were offered to preferred guest. It was a great honor to receive one of these apples. The right word at the right time is also a way to honor a person.


In this country that has been blessed so greatly it is hard for some of us to grasp the feeling of having no hope. This past year has been one that has witnessed a lot of disaster and devastation because of tornadoes, floods and other disasters. There have been tragedies worldwide as well.

Just as it always does in any worldwide tragedy, the people of United States have opened their hearts and opened their wallets to give help to those who truly need it.

We also must offer hope. It means much to people in times of tragedy or disaster to know that we care. It comforts them to know that we are praying for them. We can offer them apples of gold as well as financial help.
