Subject: April 14th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Lie not one to another; seeing that ye have put off the old man with his doings. Colossians 3.9.

To say less than what is required is lying; to be pretentious is also lying. Try to be an honest person, and you will know how difficult it is. I had a friend who one day in Kuangtung Province encountered a bandit demanding money of him. Being a Christian, he thought he could not lie that he had no money. Yet if he said he had money, the bandit would take all and leave him nothing. He finally acknowledged the fact of his money and let the bandit take all he had in his pocket. In such an emergency, he could easily have lied to try to save himself; but if he were to be true to the Lord, he could not tell a lie.
