A Continuing Meditation on Words

Keep your tongue from evil, your lips from speaking lies.

I came across this in my daily reading, today, and I thought it was worth sharing as it continues the meditation on words that has been interwoven in everything I’ve written, here, up to this point.  There are a lot of pundits who feign religiosity, and I don’t exclude myself here, who would be wise to let this verse speak to us.

It’s presented in the Psalm as the advice of a sage to children, who should follow the teaching if the children “desire life” and “covet many days to enjoy the good.”  In this age, when everything sacred is torn apart until nothing is left, far too often we are children without a sage.
