STOP WITH THE FLATTERY!

Posted on by julie

Daily Prayer for April 13th, 2019      

Good Saturday morning, God—thank You! 🙂

Help me to love my neighbor as myself, pleasing him for his good; building him up in You! Never, shall I utter lies of flattery as a ploy for greed—You are my witness. Another man might praise me, but let me not with my mouth; a stranger, but not with my lips. Not me but, You, are believably unbelievable, and my soul knows it very well. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

yet war was in his heart;
his words were softer than oil,
yet they were drawn swords.

Everyone utters lies to his neighbor;
with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.

For there is no truth in their mouth;
their inmost self is destruction;
their throat is an open grave;
