Jan 13 – Honesty – the Best Policy

A homeless man in Kansas City Missouri is also a man of integrity. Sarah Darling mistakenly dropped her diamond engagement ring into Billy Ray Harris’ donation cup, along with some spare change. Harris kept the ring safe until Sarah returned to ask about it. After he returned the ring, her husband established a fund for Mr. Harris, which at press time had received more than $170,000. In addition, Harris and his sister have reconnected after they host touch 20 years ago. She lives in Texas and has offered Harris a place with her. In this case, it was proven that honesty is the best policy. And it reminds one of a biblical truth spoken by Jesus. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.” Billy Ray Harris’ honesty experience may not often be repeated, but Jesus’ words are always fulfilled when we put Him first in our lives.
