Are You Honest or Dishonest?

by Mike Corthell

''Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,
but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.''
- Proverbs 10:9

It is truly amazing the small amounts of money some people will steal. People will sell their integrity for a few dollars. People who practice this dishonest behavior are criminal by definition and it not just an occasional occurrence, it is their way of life.

Those who lie about small things or steal tiny amounts of money develop the gross habit of lying and stealing. When you look back on your own behavior, can you do it with pride? Pride in the knowledge that you have always been honest? Probably not. Maybe it's time to think about those times and find out why you did it? Was it really worth it? Wouldn’t the positive consequences of being honest, fair and truthful have been better?

Learn from your moral failings and promise yourself that from this day onward you will always be honest and fair in your dealings with mankind.
