The scripture for today, October 10 (10/10), is Proverbs 10:10 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
Let’s talk tough love.
How can eye winking be malicious? Let’s look further at Proverbs 6:12-14 ~ “A scoundrel and villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, who winks with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers, who plans evil with deceit in his heart ~ he always stirs up dissension.”
Have you ever said something to someone, but turned to someone else in the room and winked as though to let the second person know you didn’t really mean what you just said? That made your words a lie.
You might have pre-arranged signals before a meeting, such as crossing your feet as a signal you do or don’t like what is being said. Or you may run your fingers over your hair, or tap three times on a table as a pre-arranged signal to someone else in the room. If you are saying one thing but signaling something else to your partner, then your words are lies.
Perhaps you think it is purely innocent and claim that everyone does it. But Revelation 21 says .” ..all liars…their place will be in the fiery lake.”
So, from now on, be truthful in everything you say in word and deed. It can be done. And it is liberating. Forgive me, Lord. I did not realize.
