He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. Luke 16:10

Honesty is also not just how we speak to others, but also how we speak to ourselves. While humility and modesty is a good thing, being too harsh on yourself is not being truthful.

It is important for us to find a balance of knowing our blessings and shortcomings so we can continue to grow.

When we are dishonest with ourselves, with others if chips away at our spirit, our faith and our trust in one another and ourselves. Dishonesty causes us to doubt who we are. It causes such mistrust, mistrust in our relationship with others, with God and with ourselves.

It is work being honest in every way, little lies as to not hurt our friends and etc but it rids our conscience of such a tremendous weight and strengthens our faith.

We can also find forgiveness in being truthful.

Being honest is about following in God's footsteps, for He cannot lie.
