Have you ever noticed that people often use the strategy of trying to explain away sin? Words, reasons, shouts, rants, protests are many times the approach to say that right is wrong and wrong is right. The bottom line is that sin is sin and no amount of words can change that.
“Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver, but the heart of the wicked is of little value. The lips of the righteous nourish many, but fools die for lack of sense. The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” Proverbs 10:19-22
When you stand on truth, you don’t have to say much. Truth speaks for itself. God’s Word is truth. We don’t have to defend it or explain it. We just have to live it.
Jesus, You are the Way the Truth, and the Life. Help me to live for You.
