What is the smallest and largest example of HONESTY ?
Every person feels proud on him when he is called an honest person. In our daily life and even in routine work, we forget the rules of honesty. I want the smallest and largest examples to be explored.
I'm not sure what you mean by small or large. I'd say the most honest answers and opinions I've ever received were from kids. They say exactly what's on their mind and they don't sugar-coat the facts.
The integrity or honesty of the upright shall guide them is what the Book of Proverbs counsels and advises. Adherence to this instruction compasses both great and small. Honesty is a virtue worth possessing, and allowing it to possess us as well, is beneficial for and to us. It is a personal directive and decision to choose to live upright, or in other words strive to do the right things at all times. I hope this comment is helpful.

I'm speaking of complete honesty. That means no embellishments, no exploding figures, completely honest in marketing, hiring, everything. Some say there is no such thing, what do you think?

Does it pay to be honest?The obvious answer may seem to be yes. But what if we first ask ourselves how much honesty we practice when it is inconvenient or hurting to us? How many occasions do we avoid paying a bribe knowing that we will lose? How many people of integrity do we see around us -...

In the mother of all ironies, I witnessed a fight break out over, get this, friendliness. A tried and true confederate soldier descentant was arguing that Southerners were by far nicer and kinder than Yankees and a transplanted Yankee argued that Southerners WERE nicer to your face, quicker...

To believers and unbelievers alike - what makes you respect someone whose religious beliefs are entirely different from yours - to the point that you find them silly or nonsensical? Beyond respect even, what makes you willing to befriend that person?
