“Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.” Proverbs 12:19 (ESV)
It’s easier to speak honestly and avoid inflated views of ourselves when we know we have eternal life. Having an eternal perspective to the temporal things of earth gives us courage to stay faithful to God in our communication, our behavior, and in the words we use. As saints of the Most High we have reason to respond biblically without lying and without ill consideration of others.
Let’s pray today that we may speak truth in honest and considerate ways that help others.
