Honesty is the Best Policy

When I was a kid, my parents told me that if you always told the truth, you didn’t have to remember the lies you told and to whom. I didn’t get this at the time. When I was in high school or college (now that I’m 40, the years blend together!), I remember doing something I shouldn’t have. I told one version of the story to mom, one to dad, and another to my teacher. I got caught because my parents talked to each other and then to my teacher, and my story didn’t line up. When you let honesty and integrity guide your life, not only does life become more straightforward, it becomes a blessing to yourself and those around you. Tell the truth. No matter the cost. If you don’t have someone around you to call you out on your lies, find someone or give permission to someone to hold you accountable. By the way, this proverb not only guides individuals but companies and countries too. We have a lot to learn.

Proverbs 11:3: “Honesty guides good people; dishonesty destroys treacherous people.”
