Lip Service

Lips are a very important part of a person. If you didn’t have lips it would be hard to keep your food in your mouth when eating.

Kissing probably wouldn’t be very high on your list, whereas not even your mother would avail herself of this pleasure.

It has been asked; “how can you tell if a politician is lying?” The answer is “His lips are moving!”

Lips don’t always reveal what is in the heart; they only reveal part of the intent of the heart. An example of this is, recently a President said; I will absolutely not raise taxes on middle class Americans! The lips did not say the full sentence which was; “I will absolutely, not raise taxes on middle class Americans, until I get into office!”

This was a case of inaction by the lips that gave a false impression. Another president said that a certain nation is going to use W.M.D. The result was the USA went to war with two nations. This was a typical case of Lying LIPS. The consequence has cost us a trillion dollars, and thousands of military men and women killed or injured, plus thousands of families destroyed, because of lying lips.

Isaiah cried “I am a man of unclean LIPS” For he was in the presence of the Lord.
One can only surmise that the reason men of all stature speak with lying lips is; because they never enter the presence of GOD. After being in His presence you desire your lips, and heart to be cleaned, and you then will place a guard over your mouth and lips.

The lips are the last line of defense from saying something that will harm someone; a wise person will place a guard on their lips and keep them from speaking guile.

Psalms 141:3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

Mark those who speak lying words, and trust them not, for all lies are designed to do you harm to one degree or another. The scripture admonishes us to be as wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. This means don’t be fooled by what men say, for they may not say all that is in their heart, but do good to all men as much as lies within you.

So say and so do!

Proverbs 17:4 A wicked doer gives heed to false lips; and a liar gives ear to a naughty tongue.
