(Proverbs 22:11 KJV) He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.
Let’s not worry about the kings today, focus on us. Do you “love” (157) “pureness” (purity NASB) (2889) of “heart” (3820)? That may seem like a foolish question. “Of course,” you answer. I ask, “Really? Then why did you laugh at that off color joke?” I don’t mean the joke that was really funny but the one whose only humor was to be insulting or titillating. Why do we take a second look at someone who appeals to our prurient interests? Why do we dress to draw attention of the opposite sex?
If we claim to believe in a moral life, why do we not radiate morality? How often during the day would we do things different if we would just remember that God is watching? I think it would be more frequent than we would like.
So? Just a reminder that we are called to be salt not tofu. Salt flavors what is around it. Tofu takes on the flavor of what is around it. Which way will the day go?
