An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips. Proverbs 24.26
As we have been discussing ‘loving one another,’ the image of a kiss comes right up into the conversation because it is love to offer ‘words that are full of true wisdom, thoughtful, respectful, gentle, fair and yet honest.’
Jesus said, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another (John 13:34).” I saw the image below and thought that it helps us to see “the kiss” that pleases God.
So let us remember Philippians 2:12-13 and know that with God all things are possible.
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Philippians 2:12-13
