Let no harmful language come from your mouth, only good words that are helpful (Ephesians 4:29).

In the Hebrew language, sipeyr means "tell." From this Hebrew word we get the English word "sapphire." So what is God's ancient, holy language teaching us? When children of God speak to one another, sapphires should come from our mouths. Just as God's words are always precious jewels, utterances of great value, so too, our language should "appreciate," that is, add value to someone's life.

Messiah told us the same thing: "The good person produces good things from the store of good in his heart" (Luke 6:45). We may not have expensive possessions, much money, or vast resources to share with others, but we can always give them sapphires, priceless treasures that can change their lives and cost us nothing!

Treasure the Word of God in your heart and use your mouth to speak words of love, hope, encouragement, strength, and eternal life. These are worth more than millions. Learn to deal in sapphires. Give your wife a sapphire today. Give your husband, your children, your parents, boss, co-workers, and friends each a precious sapphire. Share these riches and watch the miracles they produce. Give away a sapphire today. For gold is expensive, diamonds are costly, but sapphires from the lips of God's children are free.

...give a sapphire—a word of life, a word of love, a word of encouragement, a word of salvation—to my wife, husband, children, parents, boss, friends, even to strangers. Then I will watch the miracle!
