“Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it”
Today’s Morsel: I once heard a comedian say, “You don’t get old being no fool.” David, who is attributed to this psalm, asked the following question: What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? I’m sure like most, we would all desire to see such things. And then David tells us what we must do. He said, “Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.” In order to enjoy life and see good, we must avoid speaking sly and cunning words, we must avoid evil, and do good as well as seek after peace.
Sing: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of this earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.
Thought For Today: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Proverbs 18:21).
