365 Pocket Promises from the Bible (Day 304)
A promise about HONESTY
When you want to be truthful in all things
Who may climb the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who . . . never tell lies. They will receive the LORD’s blessing and have a right relationship with God their savior. PSALM 24:3-5
God requires honesty because honesty shows purity, integrity, and a desire to do what is true and right. Honesty creates trust, and trust is the basis of all relationships. God wants you to be completely honest-with him, with yourself, and with others. You do not honor God if you cheat or take advantage of others to get ahead. When you are honest in even the smallest details, you gain some distinct advantages: a clear conscience, the trust and respect of others, and God’s blessing. Determine today never to tell lies.
Would your closest friends describe you as an honest person?
