Scripture: Matthew 5:33-37
33"Again you have heard that it was said to the men of old, `You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.' 34 But I say to you, Do not swear at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply `Yes' or `No'; anything more than this comes from evil.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus teaches his followers the unconditional love of truth. He speaks against bearing false witness and all forms of dishonesty and swearing unnecessary oaths to God. A disciple's word should be capable of being trusted without spoken rituals to give it validity. Jesus’ disciple must speak truthfully without “stretching” the truth by adding to it or by compromising the truth by speaking falsehood or by leaving out what is necessary to convey what is truthful. Thomas Aquinas said: People could not live with one another if there were not mutual confidence that they were being truthful to one another. As a matter of honor, one person owes it to another to manifest the truth. Are we true to God, to ourselves, and to others? And do we allow God’s word of truth to penetrate our mind and heart and to form your conscience?
