One of the fastest ways to destroy a Christian testimony is to cheat people.

Nobody likes being exploited, whether it is realized at the moment of offense or later when facts make themselves known.

Any claim of being like Christ in putting others first is blown to bits by such displays of selfishness.

We’ve got to be very careful to manage that balance of protecting the interests of others while also protecting our own interests.

That challenge is to make sure that our interests are not placed ahead of the interests of others.

We almost always handle this well because of the Holy Spirit’s voice that guides us away from path of self-importance that often whispers deceptive lies.

A verse in today’s Bible reading spoke to this matter:

“All who cheat with dishonest weights and measures are detestable to the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 25:16)

Listen, such behavior in our financial dealings not only is detestable to God but to other people as well.

Let’s be truthful in all of our transactions. The cost is too high to think otherwise.

As always, I love you
