40 Days of Reflection Day 24:Colossians 3:9

Day 24Do not lie to each other… (Colossians 3:9)

None of us like to think of ourselves as liars. We talk about “being economical with the truth” or “not telling the whole story”. We find ways to justify covering up what really happened, or we try to put a spin on what we actually said. But God is truth, and we need to walk in His light which penetrates the darkest corner of our hearts.

Today ask the Holy Spirit to help you tell the truth in a way that is both clear and gracious.

If you want to reflect further, consider the experience of Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:1-13.
