In the Gospel of Luke, we read a parable from Jesus that emphasizes "an honest and good heart" (Luke 8:15). Clearly Jesus demonstrated honesty in his life and teachings.
Benjamin Franklin said "honesty is the best policy." William Shakespeare said, "no legacy is so rich as honesty."
I think the first step in honesty is being honest with ourselves. What am I honestly feeling? If I can't be honest with myself, how can I be honest with others?
How many of us would like to see more honesty in our world? Do we want people to be honest with us? I know that I do.
