In Proverbs 25:11, it says “A word of fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” Whether the words are of love, encouragement or rebuke, knowing the right time to speak is beneficial to both the listener and the speaker. Knowing the right time to be silent is also a wise thing. The Holy Spirit will help us to discern what to say and when to say it. And what words to say, at the right time and the right place. Also, to honor Him for the good of others.
