Proverb a Day: Day 24

Read Proverbs 24

To all of my friends who have given me an honest answer when I needed one, I thank you! This is the Good News Translation but I think the NIV has a beautiful translation as well: “An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.” In Biblical times, a kiss was a sign of true friendship, and my Bible commentary has this to add: “Those who genuinely love others will be honest with them; their lips will speak truth for their benefit and enrichment.”
