Honesty

by Nancy Vandemark


An important part of a person’s character is how honest they are. Character is built over time. People have to learn you are truthful and honest by learning over time that you have not lied. One lie and it causes the person to doubt anything you say after that. Some people seem to think they can be deceitful in their personal life and expect people to believe they will not practice that same deceit in politics or business. Can we really believe that? If their character is such that they lie in one area of their life, it will make it all the easier to lie in all areas of their life.

Some people try to only cast Jesus as a great prophet, a wise man. But in saying that, they are also saying he lied when he claimed to be the Son of God.

We have to believe Jesus was truthful and honest in all He said or it casts doubt on all the promises of God. That would make His word worthless. But praise be to God, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14"
