Psalm 12 contrasts flattering, lying lips with the purity of God’s words. As we come to worship, we come to a place where truth is spoken; where lies and flattery do not belong. Throughout the week, we have had to drink from contaminated sources, but now we have come to a stream where we can drink freely, without fear. When God pronounces you clean, He does not flatter. When He announces that Christ is on the world’s throne, it is no empty boast. When He tells you that you are His friend, it is no lie. When He invites you to His table, He means it.
