Cuts Like a Knife

Psalm 52:2 (NIV) You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor.

Do you ever tell only part of the truth in order to manipulate a result?  Do you arrange and/or omit facts to get what you want?  Is this deceptive?

The tongue is often compared to a sword in scripture, but here the psalmist specifically uses a word meaning pen-knife or razor.  Using such a weapon is far more intimate than fighting with a sword.  Deceit is up close and personal.

Is there harm in withholding information?

Do you need a daily reminder to reflect on God’s Word?  Follow me on Twitter @Cathy_Chung or subscribe at Seeds of Scripture to receive an email with a short bit of scripture to ponder.
