HONESTY

Honesty is a valuable virtue but in today's society it is incredibly hard to find. Business people, elected representatives, even people claiming to be servants of Christ are steadily deceiving true believers into contributing to their cause or buying their product. Company employees often misuse company property and steal undeserved wages by "looking busy" but not putting their full effort into a job. Inferior products are sold to line the pockets of the manufacturers and little concern is given to the satisfaction of the consumer.

From the Old Testament to the New Testament the Bible speaks about honesty. As scripture in Philippians 4:8 relates"... whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly..., think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]. We are called by our Heavenly Father to be a separate people. We are not supposed to act like the people of "the world".

In being honest, children of God serve as an example to "the world". If someone is dishonest with us it doesn't mean we should pay them back by being dishonest with them.

Honesty helps us learn higher spiritual understanding and helps our spiritual brethren also.

Luke 8:15 - And the seed that fell on the good ground is like those who hear God's teaching with good, honest hearts and obey it and patiently produce good fruit.

 Prayer: Dear Father bless me with the Spirit of true honesty and sincerity. Amen
