The scripture for today, October 10 (10/10) is Proverbs 10:10 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

“He who winks maliciously causes grief, and a chattering fool comes to ruin.”

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 we ever said something to someone, but turned to someone else in the room and winked as though to let the second person know we didn’t really mean what we just said? That made our words a lie.

We might have pre-arranged signals before a meeting, such as crossing our feet as a signal we do or don’t like what is being said. Or we may run our fingers over our hair, or tap 3 times on a table as a pre-arranged signal to someone else in the room. If we are saying one thing but signaling something else to our partner, then our words are lies.

Perhaps we 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, let us be truthful in everything we say in word and deed. It can be done. And it is liberating.

  1. One Gentleman – One Gentlemans Perspective, UAE – Professionally, I am not a writer. My passion is in the realm of finance, so my expertise helps my clients protect their assets. However, I enjoy writing when the time permits. I believe we all have a story to tell, especially the individual who believes that his or her story is meaningless to others. I ventured into the blogging arena because of my wife. She believed that my message on shining a light on the gentleman's lifestyle, was worth sharing beyond her listening ear. Through her push and creation, the moniker One Gentleman was born. I am young professional newlywed, striving to create a better version of himself, while sharing One Gentleman's Perspective in the process. I share information the best way I know—through past mistakes or lessons from my elders.

    Great message for the day. Even in a moment of innocence, we could participate in something wrong. Interesting.

    • Satan makes sin seem so harmless, doesn’t he? We can never say we are good enough.

        This is an interesting observation for me. When you are in the midst of people committing “wrong,” they try and tempt you to do the same. When you reject, it changes their mood a bit. Your rejection allows them to see the wrong being committed. Sometimes, it even causes them to stop what they are doing. However, when others are engaging in this act, it feels as natural as inhaling air. You are correct–Satan allows sin to feel as harmless as waking up each morning. To you, your sin is second nature
