Bible Reading:  Proverbs 19:9, 21:6

Memory Verse:  Do not lie to one another, having put off the old man with his practicesColossians 3:9 (BLB)

Credit to the grace of God upon Pastor Dr Paul Eneche. He said, “I was in the aircraft one day in Abuja, Nigeria and a ‘big man’ was on the phone seating by me. He picked his call and was telling someone he was in Lagos, but he was still at the airport in Abuja. He was seating beside me about to board a flight and you are lying before stepping on a flight. What if something happen on the flight? There are those who crack jokes to make people laugh. I tell them, you don’t need to lie to make people laugh. There are many genuine stories that are humorous enough to tell without fabricating things. You may think you understand the lie but God does not understand it. God is truthful and He has zero tolerance for lies.

One young man met me and said when he came into our workforce, he had a degree but the degree wasn’t correct. I said do you know what we are going to do? I told him to retrieve the degree certificate and return to Ordinary National Diploma (OND) which  was the nearest certificate he had back then. Now go ahead and get a new degree. It didn’t cost him his job. It didn’t cost him anything because he came on the platform of truth.

One man went to his boss in the office and said, “I want to say that the certificate I used to get this job is not correct, please I want to resign”. And the boss said, “Who will let a person like you go; how many people are as truthful as you? We won’t release you”. Maintain a lifestyle of honesty and transparency.
