“Let your word be ‘yes, Yes’ or “No, No’; anything more than this comes from the evil one” Matthew 5:37
Have you ever haggled over the price of a car? The salesman becomes your best friend, but has to “check with the manager” in the back who apparently is really stern and doesn’t want to come down on price, but takes forever to tell the salesman which leaves you waiting uncomfortably in a cubical? OK, that was a big run-on sentence, but you get what I’m saying. Our culture is full of these kinds of games which leave us wondering what the true price really is, or the truth in general. When I read Jesus’ words about not swearing or making oaths but just telling the truth I can’t help but wonder how different our world would be if we adopted His way. What is it that makes us use gimmicks to try to convince people? What does that say about us? How do we become people of integrity worthy of trust? See you Sunday!
