Today’s reading: Psalm 59:1-17
In the middle of David’s seeking God for deliverance and comfort as Saul and others are intent on his destruction, David specifically points out to God how his adversaries are sinning with their mouths.
“For the sin of their mouths, the words of their lips, let them be trapped in their pride. For the cursing and lies that they utter . . .” (vs. 12)
This verse highlights for me how so much of our sin is tied to the words we let come out of our mouths, as well as how what we say quite candidly reveals the spiritual condition of our heart.
Think back over some of the words you’ve spoken this week. What did they reveal about your heart? How can and will you use the words you speak, today and in the coming week, to reflect a loving and God-focused heart? Tami
