Psalm 12:1-2 “Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.”

We should hope that we are not at the point in our society that David was in his time, though I fear very often we are.

If the faithful men are failing to live with sincere Godliness then certainly the world is in deep trouble.

It should be the practice of any man of God to speak with integrity and purpose. Our lips should never utter flattery and deceit as these men uttered.

If the people in our communities cannot count on the men of God to uphold Godliness than to whom will they turn?

We should, with great honesty, examine the manner of our speech. If it is anything but true and faithful we should take steps to change it.

God help us to refrain from ruining our good testimony with false words – words that are vain, words from a heart that is divided.

Let us look to God for a heart-change, then expect a change of vocabulary.

Psalm 12:1-2 “Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.”
