A simple statement made complex by selfishness.

How does this simple statement become complicated in your life?

Deuteronomy 5:20 niv

birds

This is straightforward enough.
Don’t tell lies about your neighbor.
We may not outright lie but maybe
there are times we avoid the truth or don’t speak up
when we hear something being told that we know is untrue.

I know that sometimes I keep quiet and allow the lie and so it seems like truth. 
Does that make me part of the false testimony?
Is it avoiding the truth to allow the lie ?

James 4:12 niv

neighbor

There is only one Lawgiver and Judge.
That would be God, not you or me.

Doesn’t this division of labor take a weight off your shoulders?

James 2:8 esv

reach

Some neighbors are easy to love some are not.
There is no distinction made here;
we are to love them as we love ourselves even if we don’t like them.

How well are you doing?
