Honesty is an essential attribute that everyone should possess. 2 Corinthians 8:21 states, "For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man."
The Lord is not the only individual that appreciates your honesty; your friends, family and everyday acquaintances will be grateful for the truth. You do not want to live on lies because they will eat away at your conscious. Speaking the truth may cause others to become upset however in the end they will recognize the value of your honesty.
