But all they gave him was lip service; they lied to him with their tongues.
Psalms 78:36 (NLT)
It is so easy to give “lip service.” How often do we do it in our relationships? James writes, “Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, ‘Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well’—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?” It is easy to praise God with our lips but dishonor Him with our lives. It is so easy to say, “We love you, Lord” and not do what He says. Today, examine your heart. If needed, repent and know that He will forgive you and give you the grace you need to serve Him with harmony between your lips and your heart.
Father, I know that there are so many times that I give you lip service only. I talk the talk but neglect to walk the walk. Forgive me for my hypocrisy. Holy Spirit, help me live as Jesus lived, in Spirit and in truth.
