Message Meme: Let’s Be Honest!

Our commandment this week: Don’t tell lies about others.

This commandment has more to do with perjuring oneself as witness in court than telling someone everything is fine when it’s not, or that their new hairstyle looks fabulous when it really looks like a horrible hack job.

Remember back to the third commandment:

8BE7C81C-9DCD-486B-ABDD-387688B76AC0

Not taking the name of Lord in vain spoke directly to the ways we carried his name WELL in all we do and say.

There seems to me to be a direct correlation between these two commands. If we are carrying well the name and character of our neighbor (because the commands are about how we live and build community), then we will do everything positive in our power to build them up—not tear them down with lies and gossip.

Let’s be honest.
