(Proverbs 12:22 KJV) Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
Are “lying” (8267) “lips” (8193) the end of the story? That is literal. What about the figurative applications? What about lying hands? Can feet lie?
What do we say to people by the way we dress? Americans are casual about clothes but in many historical cultures clothing was regulated by law. Certain colors, materials and styles were legally reserved for specific social classes or professions. We dress to impress, good or bad.
What does it mean to dress honestly? Is there deceit involved in the kind of car we drive? We have all seen people who drive cars better than we do collecting some kind of government support.
So? Honesty covers every aspect of our life. Maybe the car you drive sends a message that is an abomination to God. Maybe, like me, you need to wash it more often. Righteousness touches every corner of our life.
