How do we define what it means to lie? The Ten Commandments give us a good one.
(Exodus 20:16 KJV) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.That focuses on the things we say. Speak the truth.
Here the target is our actions, how we live. We are expected to “deal” (6213a) “truly” (faithfully NASB) (530). This reminds us that following Jesus is not just a matter of words but a matter of behavior.
This means that you give an hour of work, at least, for an hour of pay. This means you give honest weights whether you are buying or selling. It means that you are honest about the quality of things you sell in yard sales. It means you show up on time. There are so many applications. Everything we do reflects on our Jesus.
So? We are different, or we should be. You make choices and set priorities. Let them bring “delight” (7522) to the heart of God.
