June 9: Disguising Ourselves


Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 26:24


On this date in 1999, after being ejected by Home Plate Umpire Randy Marsh for arguing over a catcher’s interference call, Mets manager Bobby Valentine returned to the dugout wearing a fake moustache and glasses. The National League suspended Valentine for two games and fined him for wearing the disguise.


The writer of Proverbs spoke of how malicious people might disguise themselves. They do so with misleading words, even though the words may sound nice. What these people say does not reflect their hearts, for they harbor deceit. The writer wants us to be on guard for the verbal disguises some may use while having lies and ill will in their hearts. We must always guard against that kind of speech as Children of God.

  1. Have you ever come across a person like the writer describes for us today?

  2. How hard is it for our talk and our walk with Christ to match up?

  3. Thank God today for always wanting the very best for us!

May we never be guilty of speaking love and having malice in our hearts. May our lives match more closely with the Savior’s life each day.
