Good question. I do agree the obvious answer is a "Yes" because I believe it is does pay to be honest. It's a process we all are working on. I don't believe anyone can say that they have never, ever told a lie and been completely forthright, (flawless in every way) from their birth til now.
Integrity............. well we need more men and women of integrity in this world. I believe when we do our best to be as honest as possible, we are blessed with more honesty coming our way. Being honest can hurt and can heal us, however, I would rather hear the painful truth upfront versus believing lied to for a sometime then to hear/see/know the truth (after putting my trust, faith and confidence in a lie), which would hurt even the more when I would finally know the honest truth. Honesty is tough at times but well worth it in the long run.
I know that's what I'm aiming to do. Anyone else agree?
