A kiss on the lips....

Proverb24: 26 He who gives an honest answer
gives a kiss on the lips.

These words spoke so clearly to me this morning... What does it mean? And how does it apply to us?

Well this is what I get out of these words... A person who speaks honestly, and directly is someone who cares. Someone who is willing to put themselves out there in a place where others do not dare to tread. They are willing to tell you when you are wrong, or admit when you are right.

Are you one of those people? Or do you only tell people what you think they want to hear?

Are your words full of purity and truth? Or are they words that only benefit you?

We tend to forget that our words are important.  Words to each other, to your spouse, your children, your friends or family... are important and according to scripture we will give an account for every idle word.

Mathew 12:36"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment"

What does the word idle mean?

Useless; vain; ineffectual;Unfruitful; barren; not productive of good

When you speak truth is it to encourage or to tear down?

As sisters in Christ we are to encourage one another with the Truth of the Word of the Lord.. to "kiss each other on the lips" with the Word that will heal those who are hurting, give wisdom to those who are seeking and bring joy to those who have sorrow!

Encourage one another today- show someone you care!
