An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Transgression of the Lips

(Pro 12:13 KJV) The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.

Some people look for “transgression” (6588). This is talking about lying in its many forms. I like the idea of a “transgression of the lips.” We have a culture that is making so many accommodations to dishonesty that it is frightening. In politics we call it “spinning.” In business we call it “advertizing.” In the church we call it being “seeker friendly”. In our personal lives we call it “tact.” Sometimes those difference are real, too often they are lies. We need to remember that when the residents of the lake of fire are listed, liars are right there in their midst. It is not a small thing, it is eternal. It is what evil men do. The reformation should start in the church.
