The Bible and Honesty

God expects and deserves honesty. "You deserve honesty from the heart; yes, utter sincerity and truthfulness. Oh give me this wisdom." Psalm 51:6, TLB.

Being dishonest about someone is as harmful and lasting as physical wounds. "Telling lies about someone is as harmful as hitting him with an ax, or wounding him with a sword, or shooting him with a sharp arrow." Proverbs 25:18, TLB.

The Lord doesn't approve of dishonesty in business dealings. "The Lord detests differing weights, and dishonest scales do not please Him." Proverbs 20:23, NIV.

Be honest and open. "So you can see that we were not preaching with any false motives or evil purposes in mind; we were perfectly straightforward and sincere." I Thessalonians 2:3, TLB.
"For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men." II Corinthians 8:21, NIV

Honesty is involved in two of the commandments. "You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor." Exodus 20:15-16, NIV.

Leaders value those who speak the truth. "The king rejoices when his people are truthful and fair." Proverbs 16:13, TLB.

Truth is more valuable than flattery. "In the end, people appreciate frankness more than flattery." Proverbs 28:23, TLB.

The children of honest parents are blessed. "It is a wonderful heritage to have an honest father." Proverbs 20:7, TLB.

Tell the truth. "Lies will get any man into trouble, but honesty is its own defense. Telling the truth gives a man great satisfaction, and hard work returns many blessings to him." Proverbs 12:13-14, TLB.

Fraudulent gain is sweet only for awhile. "Food gained by fraud tastes sweet to a man, but he ends up with a mouth full of gravel." Proverbs 20:17, NIV.

Riches gained dishonestly don't last. "A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare." Proverbs 21:6, NIV.

Do it God's way. "The Lord hates cheating and delights in honesty." Proverbs 11:1, TLB.

God values honesty most. "God is more pleased when we are just and fair than when we give Him gifts." Proverbs 21:3, TLB.5


Testimonials and Comments



Definition of Honesty

1. the quality or fact of being honest; uprightness and fairness.    

2. truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness.

3. freedom from deceit or fraud.4



Honesty is the value of speaking truth and creating trust in minds of others. This includes all varieties of communication, both verbal and non-verbal. Honesty implies a lack of deceit. A statement can be strictly true and still be dishonest if the intention of the statement is to deceive its audience. Similarly, a falsehood can be spoken honestly if the speaker actually believes it to be true.

Honesty can be displayed to others, to oneself, and to the gods.

Honesty is typically considered virtuous behaviour, and has strong positive connotations in most situations. A principal reason for this may be that honesty simplifies communication, in that honest statements can be trusted at face value, not necessarily as true, but as genuinely believed. Additionally, honesty helps to form bonds of trust in human relationships.

Conversely, dishonesty can be defined simply as behaviour that is performed with intent to deceive. Lying, lying by omission, fraud, and plagiarism are all examples of this sort of behaviour. Other examples can be doing one thing and telling the other, as if you are hiding something.8
