Flattery is Fine as Long as You Don’t Inhale It


Thank you so very much for sharing with us your Church sign Pastor Richard Mansfield of New Beginnings Church in Albuquerque!

God’s Word has a lot to say about flattery…….

May the LORD cut off their flattering lips and silence their boastful tongues. Psalm 12:3

He will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him. Daniel 11:32

In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin. Psalm 36:2

A man who flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his feet. Proverbs 29:5

Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart; when he speaks graciously, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart; though his hatred be covered with deception, his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling. A lying tongue hates its victims, and a flattering mouth works ruin. Proverbs 26: 24-28
