“Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not deceive one another.” (Lev 19:11)
Here is one of those Scripture that cuts to the chase. It goes beyond any manipulation and tells it like it is. Does it leave any room for doubt? No. Does it leave any room for a minimal offense? No.
It is black and white, clear and simple—don’t lie, don’t steal, and don’t deceive.
That one simple short line convicts us all of sin. If you don’t think it applies to you, take a moment and have a reality check. We all fall short of the glory of God, and a man who says he is without sin is a liar.
This applies to our work lives and businesses, just as it does to all other aspects of life. Just because it is a common practice doesn’t make it right.
Quick Prayer: Forgive me. Amen.
