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.

Slippery Tongues

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

I keep coming across people who point out that it is easier to tell the truth than to lie.  If you ever have the misfortune to be arrested or questioned by the authorities it is important to stay as close to the truth as possible.  For Christians there is always the assurance that liars go into the lake of fire.  That should be enough for us but some need more.  The problem with exaggerating or out and out lying is that you can’t always remember exactly what you said.  If you tell the truth, you know what to say next time.

So?  This is advice for everyday life, not just in court.  Speak the truth.

And then there's "Honey, do these slacks make me look fat?"

And of course the answer is "No, the slacks do not make you look fat."
