Chapter 1, Page 7, Book 13
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
Honesty is very important, but sometimes it does seem very difficult. There are times when lying seems to be easier. But at some point the truth will always come out. So in the long run, honesty is the best policy.
There are lots of people that are wise in their own eyes. It could be that is me. Maybe I'm not so wise in the eyes of others. Anyone that thinks they know better than someone else is being wise in their own eyes. I really do have to try to look through the eyes of others before I speak.
The next time I think I know better than others, I need to stop and humble myself for a moment before saying something. Listening and asking questions requires humility and a willingness to admit that we just might not know everything.
I'll continue as always to honest, but will be try to be wise before I speak.
