Is Your Tongue Wagging and Wiling with Deceit?
Proverbs 6:19 (KJB) A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
This scripture verse is found right in the middle of a petition about things God hates. Yes, that is right things He hates. The truth of this verse is plainly and simply revealed for our learning. God hates deceit and tongues willing to wag with lies.
A dishonest tongue wags with lies and deceit. Perhaps a man can get away with speaking falsely and making claims that are far from the truth in this world, but he certainly will reap an eternal reward for his choice to sin in this blatant manner.
At the end of this passage please note that God added in this: “and he that soweth discord among brethren…” to elaborate on the point that consequences for making misleading or false statements and teaching to any child of God works to sow discord and divide and draws only certain hate from God.
A child of God of all people should be more than willing to use his tongue for praising and honoring God and in respect to others rather than wagging with lies and deceit. Choose your words and to witness wisely.
