LYING TONGUES – Wed, Mar 20, 2019

Psalm 120:3-4 KJV

What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?

[4] Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper

One of the questions I battled with, growing up as a young christian, was whether all sins were of the same magnitude in the eyes of the LORD. I know how much of a debate this could spark so wouldn’t even go there now. 😊

So much emphasis is laid on fornication and adultery that they are perceived as the worst of sins in most circles. But I believe one of the most silent killers is lies and untruthfulness. Have you wondered why we lie so spontaneously these days… why they just come with no effort? Very simple… these are part of the enemy’s strategy in our time.

I like the way the Message Bible quotes these verses (v3 – 4): “…pointed arrows and burning coals will be your reward, all you barefaced liars.” A deceitful tongue is never godly and no matter your efforts in the kingdom, your lies would only pull them all down.

May God deliver your soul and mine from lying (Ps 120:2) and from deceitful tongues. May the truth be our standard in this deceitful generation and may our lives be a wonder unto many.

Have a blessed day.
