Oranges of gold, in settings of ceramic

Decided to prepare my own dinner tonight, and it was GLORIOUS.
An orange, banana with nutella, bread and creamy butter, and corn on the cob smothered in mayo and parmesan cheese. <3 Woo.
Yummy + healthy = EXTRA SATISFIED!

THIS, is my dinner, yo!

While preparing this, God reminded me of Proverbs 25:11, which says,

Like apples of gold in settings of silver Is a word spoken in right circumstances.

Words, whether we believe it or not, can really affect us. Which explains why there are tons of verses that we can find in the Bible about our tongues and the words we speak.

“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity.” (James 3:6)

And this got me thinking… What do I say nowadays? Often times, we let words slip out of our mouths with very little regard as to what those words may mean. And this is most definitely one thing I struggle with. I let complaints slip past my lips, “white” lies (which are still lies no matter how ‘small’ they may be), gossip, slander, and the list goes on…

If I were to put those words on a plate to serve them to the Lord, it would be a very, VERY dirty plate. With rotten words. And now that I think about it that way, I’m embarrassed. How could I serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords something as hideous as rotten food? If God were a human-ly sort of king, He’d be screaming, “Off with her head!” already!

But he hasn’t. And the beautiful thing is, He never has or ever will.

Like apples of gold in settings of silver Is a word spoken in right circumstances. (Proverbs 25:11)

Now, the question is: Am I going to serve the Lord something worthy of His glory? Or am I going to keep shoving plates of rotten food at Him?
