And the words of the Lord are flawless,
like silver purified in a crucible,
like gold refined seven times.
I recently read a book just for the fun of it; a good ole, fiction work of mind candy. One of the main characters in the book was well known for only saying what he meant and meaning what he said. This made it possible for the main female character of the book to be able to trust him at all times and in all circumstances because there never was a shadow of doubt of what he thought or what he would do.
Ever talk to someone or read something that someone wrote in which they use a mountain of words and yet you have no idea what point they are attempting to make? It feels like trying to stand on sinking sand. What good is it? Why would someone go round and round the proverbial bush never arriving at a destination? Our world is full of words; news, advertisements, music, talk shows, entertainment, literature, gossip, speeches, lectures, conversations, emails, blogs, and on and on those words spin and swirl. How many of those words are “flawless?” I took a philosophy course in college. The professor of that class irritated me to no end because he continuously danced around naming God. He would use every vague notion in the book to loosely describe the Author of life but never EVER call the Creator, God. Why?
The only reason ever to be vague, to use mountains of words to say nothing is because there is something to hide; something we don’t want to be discovered or understood. Man, I am SO thankful that God does not operate in the shadows; His words are flawless. There is no sinking sand found in our Lord, only the firm foundation of truth. I like someone who says what they mean and does what they say. Amen and Amen!!!!
