Honesty is a very vital virtue in our lives. God demands that His people should be honest in whatever they do. We can receive this character through the power of the spirit of God.
When we depend on God for our needs and trust Him to take care of every aspect of our lives, we can develop the virtue of honesty. When honesty is at work in us, it will be seen in our relationships, friendships, community, families, workplaces, and service to the Lord.
Here are a few Bible Verses that will motivate us to live an honest life:
