Expressions of Faith: Deceitful Speech

Deceitful Speech
For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.
(1 Peter 3:10 NIV)


This is the first in a series of three verses about turning from evil and doing good.

It's not random that Peter's first direction on this topic deals refers to the way we speak.

Peter closely links being evil and being deceitful.

Rewriting this in a DO instead of a DON't DO style might read:
...must speak the truth in love.

Oh, wait. Paul said to DO that.
