“And my honesty will testify for me in the future, whenever you check on the wages you have paid me. Any goat in my possession that is not speckled or spotted, or any lamb that is not dark-colored, will be considered stolen.” (Gen 30:33)
Honesty is a foundational standard that testifies to our relationship with God. It is a 100 percent call to 100 percent honesty. Let us lay a standard that is beyond reproach regardless of who is checking us out.
I don’t know about you, but I like to sleep at night. If we have confidence in doing a good job and being honest in all our declarations and actions, we can have confidence that we are beyond reproach.
If we are honest in the very small, seemingly insignificant things, we will be honest on the large things. Stay faithful and stay honest, and God will exalt you in due time.
Quick Prayer: Keep me honest, Lord. Amen.
