honesty

Each time we gather for worship in All Saints Chapel, we wonder about how to put God’s gift of love at work in our lives. Every month, we focus on a specific virtue and how when we live it out, we reflect God’s love toward all. We begin the year wondering about the virtue of honesty. Noel Coward once said, “It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.” Have we become so used to dishonesty that we can’t hear or speak truth? The temptation to speak dishonestly if it gives us more power over someone else, if it means winning the argument, if it means hurting someone’s feelings are real for all of us. Honesty take courage. Honesty takes commitment. Honesty reflects our integrity.
