2/4/2021 – Yes and No

Matthew 5:37 - But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
Beware deception coming from the tongue,
For it can take a life unto its own;
Before you know it, loyalty is sprung
To something you would never fain condone.
Remember who you’ve given your life to,
The One who gave you speech and thought and will.
When you belong to Jesus make it true
That even all your words are His to fill.
Your ‘yes’ should not be ‘no’, nor your ‘no’ ‘yes’,
Or else you speak in lies and slip to sin.
So always seek to edify and bless,
And look to Jesus fore your words begin.
            The more you talk against the Spirit’s guide,
            The less advice you hear from Him inside.
