Don’t Slip on the Words of a Smooth Talker

Some people see a ring on the finger and they respect the boundary that it represents.

Some see a ring on the finger and they see as it a challenge.

To such a person the “game” begins with the end goal in sight: false flattery, ego inflation, and an up-tick in excitement which reaches a point of infatuation that ignores the obvious – righteousness and the cost.

Such is the danger of allowing our heart to slip on the words of a smooth talker that has no regard for our soul. EA

My son, pay attention to my wisdom; lend your ear to my understanding, that you may preserve discretion, and your lips may keep knowledge. For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil; but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death, her steps lay hold of hell.” Proverbs 5:1-5
