This reading is almost like an OT story plopped into the NT of harsh treatment, we will use it to look at the issue of telling the truth and honesty.  Jesus is himself the way, the truth, and the life and his followers must also be people of the truth!  A reputation tarnished is not easily cleaned and repaired, lying can hurt our witness for Christ, praising God should replace any and all dishonesty.
