“Treasures By A Lying Tongue”

“Treasures By A Lying Tongue”

Blessings folk!

The Proverbs tell us much about how we are to live…even things related to “treasures”.

Note how we are to attain treasures.
Note what we are to do…

Pro 21:1-6

The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD;
He turns it wherever He wishes.

Every man’s way is right in his own eyes,
But the LORD weighs the hearts.

To do righteousness and justice
Is desired by the LORD more than sacrifice.

Haughty eyes and a proud heart,
The lamp of the wicked, is sin.

The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage,
But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.

The acquisition of treasures by a lying tongue
Is a fleeting vapor, the pursuit of death.

We are to have “a right heart”.

A heart to do righteousness.
A heart to do justice.
A heart without pride.
A heart without haughtiness.

We are to:

  • Allow the hand of the Lord to turn us as He wishes
  • Seek what the Lord desires
  • Reject the lamp of the wicked
  • Be diligent in planning
  • Be not hasty
  • Not acquire treasure by a lying tongue…such is the pursuit of death

Have the heart of a king for the King!
