Flattering Lips

28 A lying tongue hates its victims, and a flattering mouth works ruin. ~ Proverbs 26:28

Do not fall for every word of flattery you receive. Be wise. Weigh their words. If it is flattery, it will feel good. It will stroke your ego. It will fill you with pride, but it will not end well.

Flattery never ends in the best interest of the one being flattery. Instead, flattery always ends in ruin for the one being flattered. It is not in your best interest, no matter how important it makes you feel. No matter how good it makes you feel. Or how admired you think you are. Flattery is always in the best interest of the flatterer.

Flattery is just another form of manipulation. We are sheep amongst wolves, so be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.

LORD God, help me discern the deceitful words of the world around me. Open my eyes to the lies of the enemy. Teach me to love Your word that it might be a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Be with me in everything that I do. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
