Proverbs 27:6
In the Right Relationship, Msg. 11

Proverbs is the third Division of the Hebrew Bible. Several parts of the book ascribe to Solomon, the son of David, as the author of those sections. It is possible that most of the proverbs in this book were either spoken or collected by Solomon. The last two chapters of the book are credited to two men, Agur, an Arabian sage, and King Lemuel, of whom little is known. Some believe Lemuel was not a real person, but possibly a symbol of King Lemuel, himself. The chief characteristic of this book is brevity: the compression within a few concise and precise words of striking thought.

Today’s message discusses the definition of "kiss" or "a kiss"; to touch with the lips as a sign of love, reverence, greeting, or sexual desire. But consider this warning: Everyone who kisses you does not do so for the same reason. Kisses can signify trust or adversity. Beware of the latter. They can be disloyal, even deadly. They can come from a deceitful heart not to be confided in, like a Judas kiss or a kiss of death. Be careful and be watchful of who kisses you.
