The development of honesty

Is it important to be honest? Many people certainly would not hesitate to agree that it is—perhaps citing the destructive effect of dishonesty on the moral fiber of society and on one's own self-respect.

Yet honesty is more than important. It is absolutely indispensable. For if we are to come to understand the nature of reality and to demonstrate the true status of man as God's image, honesty must pervade every aspect of our experience; it must be an essential ingredient in all the details of our human affairs. When forged by spiritual sense, honesty constitutes a power that enables us to break free of sin and falsehood so that we can more clearly recognize the immediate saving presence and governing law of divine Truth in our lives.
