Pretty Words

PRETTY WORDS

“A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. “
–Proverbs 15:4

It was recently noticed that a person issued a CONSTANT stream of compliments (and other very nice remarks) about any and all of his fellows with whom he came in contact.

It was ADDITIONALLY noticed that the person’s BEHAVIOR was often at odds with the words which issued regularly from his mouth.

Why was this occurring?

Was the person confused?

Was the person disorganized in both his thoughts and his actions?

OR, was the person using his words to DECEIVE the ones at whom the compliments were targeted?

IF it was not for the person’s actions, any who were unfamiliar with that person might believe the words coming from his mouth.

Perhaps the person himself believed them?

NOW this is all written in order to write this:

Pretty words are NOT always what they seem to be.

Sometimes, pretty words are used in order to ‘set up‘ someone for a fall.

Maybe the person who is the author of all of those pretty words is a big believer in something attributed to the notorious gangster, Al Capone?

“You can get further with a kind word and a gun than you can with only a kind word.”

BEWARE OF PRETTY WORDS.

Sometimes one can take them at face value; OFTEN, one cannot.

“A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.”
–Proverbs 19:9

WHAT does the reader believe about those who shower him with CONSTANT compliments?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
