UNCLEAN LIPS

Isaiah cried: “Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips.” (Isaiah 6:5)

Mark the words, “I dwell in the midst of unclean lips!” How very true! Right from parliament to pavement, we see people uttering foul language, lies, curses, harsh words and so on. Obscene language is trendy on social media and in western countries, it flows like water. Recently while I was traveling in the train, a young girl was struggling to get her ticket confirmed, an elderly hindu man who was reading a spiritual book for several hours looked at her and said boisterously, ‘show the ticket collector a hundred rupee note and you can get your ticket confirmed.’ I wondered what did he achieve from reading those spiritual books for that many hours! But look what the Bible says: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”(Proverbs 18:21) Caution! Let your words be few and true!

What would you do when you are asked for experience in a particular field? You have a choice of uttering a bundle of lies by just hiking up the experience period and also including some technical qualifications which you do not have at all. Are you there? Look what the Bible says: “None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. “ (Isaiah 59:4) I am speaking to someone out there? Search your resume, aadhar card and other documents with the microscope and remove lies and fake details,  in order for God to remove curses from your life.

Friend, let your speech be ‘golden!’ Remove harsh language, coarse language, deceit, hurtful words, bitter words, boastful words and cunning words. Let your words be pleasant ! “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” (Proverbs 16:24) It requires an endless supply of energy, a massive amount of patience and iron will to control our unbridled tongue in this world. Let’s do it!

Let’s pray like Psalmist David: “Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” (Psalm 141:3)
