Scientists now say that it wasn’t a giant gash that sunk the 900-foot cruise ship, the Titanic, but instead a series of small narrow slits across the watertight holds in the hull of the ship. Fifteen hundred people died as the result of small chinks in the armor of that ship.
As Christians, small chinks in our character can sink our reputation and witness. The most common damage to our character comes through our lies. As we will learn in our lesson today, we should be people who should be able to say, “I cannot tell a lie!” Why? One of the reasons is because eternal lives are at stake, and people will not listen to us when we throw them the lifeline of the Gospel, unless we have integrity in all we say and do!
May God anoint us with His character of truth,
