Do Not Lie #362

Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10  and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him” (Colossians 3:9-10)

A lie is a falsehood, an untruth, a deception. Every day we face many temptations to lie, from fudging our taxes to calling into work “sick” when that is not at all the case. Christians deliberately choose not to be deceptive – even if it costs them. And, it will. But, Christians choose to follow the example of Christ – and there was never deceit in His mouth (1 Pet. 2:21-22). Make up your mind that you will be a person of truth, honesty and integrity every day. By doing so you will “put off the old man with his deeds” and “put on the new man” who is conformed to the image of Christ. Be like Christ – not like sinners.
