Sweet words are like honey, a little may refresh but too much gluts the stomach Anne Bradstreet wrote.
I keep telling people that is better to have a friend that will tell and keep telling you the truth than a friend that will flatter you to your grave
Flattering is lavishing praise and compliment on someone often insincerely and with the aim of furthering one’s own business.
flatterers are exploit of human strength, abilities, talents, time and resources.
See what the scripture says in Psalm 12 vs 3
May the LORD silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue.
So that means God hates flattering and those that flatters
Flattering is different from praise. The difference is the intent of the words. You can be praise for doing a specific assignment or action, but flattering is without cause. You have not done anything and the person starts rendering sweet words.

A girl was appearing rude and a guy was shouting yes, i love this girl, i love her actions i love her words and i was laughing and same time angry with the guy and the girl. Because i saw when the guy was eyeing the girl and even collected her number before the incident.
Dear Reader, i guess you know the mission of the guy?
