Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

A Well-Chosen Word
by Charles R. Swindoll

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

Like Jell-O, concepts assume the mold of the words into which they are poured. Who has not been stabbed awake by the use of a particular word . . . or combinations of words? Who has not found relief from a well-timed word spoken at the precise moment of need? Who has not been crushed beneath the weight of an ill-chosen word? And who has not gathered fresh courage because a word of hope penetrated the fog of self-doubt? The term word remains the most powerful of all four-letter words.

Colors fade.

Shorelines erode.

Temples crumble. 

Empires fall. 

But "a word fitly spoken" endures.
