And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had placed the children of Israel under solemn oath, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here with you.”
Exodus 13:19 NKJV
Joseph placed the people of Isreal of his day under a solemn oath, and over 400 years later, they still kept their word.
Honesty and integrity in our world today is losing value. I believe the average person will tell you the truth unless it suits their needs and have no problem lying about it.
Jesus says that we should let our yes be yes and no be no. In Exodus 20, in the Ten Commandments, He says we are not to bear false witness. That also concerns what we might not say in order to lead someone to believe something wrong.
Do our lives tell the truth verbally and non-verbally?
