He Must Not Tell Lies

 

 

 

 

 

 

My husband received a call today on his cell phone.

I watched in the kitchen as he listened for a moment and then ended the one sided conversation.

It actually had not been a conversation at all, since he had been listening to an automated message.

The message stated that he had filled out an entry for a cruise recently and he had won…..

The truth?

No.

Neither of us had filled out anything about a cruise.

How does this make me feel?

The company was being deceitful in their marketing.

If I did want to plan a cruise, I wouldn’t want to go with that company.

They have not shown themselves to have integrity.

Not only would I not want to go on a trip with a cruise line like that, I wouldn’t want to be involved with  any business that I could not trust.

Have someone work on my car?

I want to trust them.

Hire a crew to roof my house?

I want to trust them.

Take my child to a dentist?

I want to trust them.

At this point, I need to ask myself if others view me as trustworthy.

Do they believe my words or dismiss them as lies?

As followers of Christ, how should we live?

 

The Scripture says,

“A person must do these things

    to enjoy life and have many happy days.
He must not say evil things,
    and he must not tell lies.
 He must stop doing evil and do good.
    He must look for peace and work for it.
 The Lord sees the good people
    and listens to their prayers.
But the Lord is against
    those who do evil.”

 1 Peter 3:10-12
