Smooth Talker

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Psalm 55:21

His talk is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart; his words are more soothing than oil, yet they are drawn swords.


Here we read King David’s lament over a close friend who turned out to be a “Smooth Talker.” Simply put, the man was a complete phony who had conned David into believing he could trust him. But instead, the King in time found him to be nothing more than a “Smooth Talker.”


When was the last time someone mesmerized you with their “Smooth Talk,” only for you to find out later you had been conned? Words must be backed up with a life equal to the task. It’s one thing to talk a good game. But you and I both know talk can be cheap. People are looking for actions that prove one’s words are valuable. Anything less is just “Jive Talk” from a “Smooth Talker.” King David learned that the hard way.


Dear Jesus,

This AM help me to always look past a person’s potential “Smooth Talk” to the content of their character and life. Amen
