The eighth commandment, you shall not give false testimony against your neighbor, is not just a command to tell the truth in court. It is a God who cares about your reputation every bit as much as He cares about your earthly possessions. You can steal my wallet. I’ll get a new one. Fixing a bad reputation is harder. God calls us to help our neighbors to stand with integrity by speaking of them the same way God sees them: holy, precious, and worthy of love.
