We are taking a break for the summer until futher notice.

Commandment 9: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor (9/27/07)

Memory Peg
The wagging tongue on the 9 is telling lies about his neighbor. God wants us to always speak the truth to one another.

1. Biblical review question:
What character from the Bible broke this Commandment and what consequences did s/he face for this rebellion?

2. Self-reflective question:
How have you been personally affected by this Commandment?

I am trying to work on not speaking poorly about people even when I don’t think it is a ‘false witness’. I normally only talk poorly about someone when I feel it is justified in someway such as they were rude to me or my family. I don’t do it often but a little bit is still too much. God tells me that I am not to judge therefore no improper language about someone is 'justified'.

Okay, I thought of one exemption- If someone tries to physically harm me or my family there will be a lot of bad language pouring out of my mouth. I think God would give me that one!
