Proverbs 12 A Thousand Elsewhere

Proverbs 12


What does that even really mean any more? In a world that believes everyone is entitled to and living by their own “truth”, how do we walk in and share about the REAL truth.

The word ‘truth’ is in The Passion Translation of the Bible 345 times. We read in Psalm 12:6 “For every word God speaks is sure and every promise pure. His truth is tested, found to be flawless, and ever faithful.”

If the Trinity who knows no sin, who can’t lie or deceive us claims the title of “Truth”, is it safe to believe them?

My answer is yes and Amen.

In a world full of personal definitions of truth, I choose Him—Jesus—the way, and the truth, and the life [John 14:6]. --- If you shrug off an insult and refuse to take offense, you demonstrate discretion indeed. But the fool has a short fuse and will immediately let you know when he’s offended. Truthfulness marks the righteous, but the habitual liar can never be trusted. Reckless words are like the thrusts of a sword, cutting remarks meant to stab and to hurt. But the words of the wise soothe and heal. Truthful words will stand the test of time, but one day every lie will be seen for what it is. Deception fills the hearts of those who plot harm, but those who plan for peace are filled with joy. Calamity is not allowed to overwhelm the righteous, but there’s nothing but trouble waiting for the wicked. Live in the truth and keep your promises, and the Lord will keep delighting in you, but he detests a liar. Those who possess wisdom don’t feel the need to impress others with what they know, but foolish ones make sure their ignorance is on display. If you want to reign in life, don’t sit on your hands. Instead work hard at doing what’s right, for the slacker will end up working to make someone else succeed. Anxious fear brings depression, but a life-giving word of encouragement can do wonders to restore joy to the heart. Proverbs 12:16-25 TPT
