Proverbs – An Honest Tongue

January 26, 2014


As we continue our series in Proverbs we discover that God has a lot to say about the tongue and what comes out of our mouths.  This week we looked at honesty and making sure that our mouths speak forth the truth and we avoid the temptation to lie.  Even if you don’t think you have a lying problem, this is a worthwhile study.  God’s thoughts about honesty are much higher than ours.  Half-truths, exaggerations, and flattery are forms of acceptable lies in our culture.  But they aren’t acceptable in God’s kingdom.  Let’s develop honesty in our speech.
