“Honesty is spiritual power. Dishonesty is human weakness, which forfeits divine help.”
~ Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health, p. 453
It pays to be honest! The temporal gain one believes they receive from being dishonest is as nothing compared to the wholesomeness, integrity and clean conscience one possesses from being honest.
Honesty is spiritual power. It’s conviction that one is receiving everything they need directly from God to be happy and successful. They feel no need to compromise their values to be in the best position possible. They are already there, in their closeness to God.
