SLICK WORDS

Read: Psalm 12

Key verse: “Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception.” Psalm 12:2

Who can find a truly honest man or woman? God’s standard is truth. What is common in our culture today? 1) Flattery= Compliments that are exaggerated or serve a selfish purpose. 2) Manipulation= Presenting an unbalanced report or changing the appearance of facts behind the scenes 3) Lies= Speaking what is false, either intentionally or unintentionally.

How will you be honest when you are at work, sharing a story, reporting your finances, or delivering truth when the relational cost will be significant? Our culture tries to clean the outside of the cup while the interior is filthy. Flowery words do not change the situational reality. The pure in heart will experience God through humble and honest words that carry truth.
