Honesty is a virtue that just doesn’t happen: it has to be learnt (James 1:17; Isaiah 1:17; Titus 3:14). A person must have the kind of heart that desires the attribute of being truthful (Matthew 13:23; Luke 6:45, 8:15). The person must detest fraud and deception; speak and practice accuracy in word and deed (Romans 12:17; Philippians 4:8; 1 Kings 22:14; 2 Corinthians 8:21; 1 Peter 2:12; Rom. 13:13; Hebrews 13:18; Proverbs 3:3).
The person must have the attitude of “what is mine I will keep and what is the other person; I will see that they get” (Luke 6:31, 19:8; Phil. 2:3-4; Ephesians 4:25). A person must realize that God isn’t dishonest and if he wants to go to heaven, he must become like God (Rom. 3:4; 1 John 1:5; 1 Peter 1:13-16).
Now, with all of this being said, one must begin changing his life; just take control and do as the word of the Lord has taught (Matt. 7:24-25; Luke 10:37; James 1:21-25).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
