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.

What Kind of Lip Do You Give?

(Proverbs 12:19 KJV)  The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

Again we read the demand for truth.  Are you seeing this?  It is almost like Solomon is working through the New York Times and getting angry at the distortions and deliberate deception.  Or we could take a more Biblical approach and just admit that the nature of human beings has not changed.

Why do you keep telling a child “No”?  Because children keep pressing the envelope.  They don’t want to accept that there are limitations on their self-centeredness.  Many of the children that are growing to run our country have never had anyone tell them “No.”  That is why they think that what they want to be true, is.

We do not have that option.  Truth may be hard to understand at times.  Truth may be uncomfortable.  Truth may be unpleasant.  With all that in mind, truth exists and is not negotiable. 

So?  Embrace truth.  That starts with Him who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  It extends into every conversation and action we take.
