Mar 25 – Honesty the best Policy

An employee of the Dartmouth Value Village is an honest person and proved it by reporting thousands of dollars in cash found tucked inside a bundle of folded drapes last month. Police are trying to find the owner. If it isn’t claimed, the employee who found and reported the money, will receive it. If that happens, it will give credence to the motto- “honesty is the best policy.” The truth is that we should be honest even if it is not the best policy and does not reward us at the time. There is no more important area of life that calls out for honesty, than that concerning our spiritual condition.. God calls on us to be honest, even though it hurts to admit that we are sinners by nature and by choice, since “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”, and even though it is humbling to recognize that it’s by grace we are saved through faith and that not of ourselves…”Thankfully though, when we are honest and humble, we find that “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
