Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it Psalm 34:13-14 New King James Version
Do you sacrifice honesty for brown nosing just to impress a teacher or boss? In the end will they not domineer you and treat you like dirt?
Do you promise much and give little to get your way?
When I was in China they would make promises to do grand things for me if I would first do what they wanted me to do for them. After I had completed the task they would laugh and swear straight faced they never made the promise (even when it was put in writing). As a result I would allow them to make the grand promises and then promise to do what they asked AFTER they had done as they promised FIRST, which of course they never did. They would look at me with hate because they knew they could not get away with their filthy lies and conniving.
Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles. Proverbs 21:23 New King James Version
When you depend upon the Holy Spirit to guide your words you do not have to be concerned about them coming back to bite you.
Everyone will have to give account on the Day of Judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you
will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”” Matthew 12:36-37 New International Version
Does this sound like judgment you dread or accolades you will humbly accept? What will be in your account on judgment day?
I read Peters vision of Hell that liars and those that cause trouble will be hung by their tongue over a river of fire while demons whip them with cat of nine tails. Does that sound like some place you want to spend eternity in?
Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with words of wisdom and grace so as to give honour and praise to Your Holy name. I humbly request this in the name of he whose words were the living waters Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
