Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

 Let's look at Proverbs 16:13

"Righteous lips are the delight of kings, and they love him who speaks what is right."

Lest you think you will never be called to speak before the ruler of the land, remember that you do so at least once every year—on April 15. You communicate in writing, validated by your signature, certain things about your financial status over the previous year. It is your responsibility to communicate that information honestly and righteously and without grumbling.

A pastor friend of mine paid no taxes for many years because his salary was so low, and he told me how resentful he was the first year he had to pay income taxes. The first few years he even addressed his envelope on April 15 to the "Infernal Revenue Service" or the "Eternal Revenue Service." But he soon realized that he was not speaking righteously before the king, and changed

his attitude. It is our privilege as citizens to try to change the system through proper channels, but until it is changed we are to have "righteous lips" before the king.

Bro. Paul
