Am I living my standards and beliefs even when no one is watching? Yes or No?
““A man’s true greatness is not in what he says he is, nor in what people say he is; [but really] in what he really is.” (Hartshorn, p. 38.) Our integrity determines what we really are.” – Personal Integrity by Joseph B. Wirthlin
“Closely associated with honesty is integrity. Integrity means thinking and doing what is right at all times, no matter what the consequences… Choose to live so that your thoughts and behavior are always in harmony with the gospel.” – For the Strength of Youth
Think over your day and try to think if you have lived with honesty and integrity. Think of at least one thing you did wrong. Pray for help to do better next time.
Today I, ____________________, will be honest with myself, others, and God at all times.
“Do not rationalize that being dishonest is acceptable, even though others may think it does not matter.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today and until June 21, I, ____________________, will not rationalize that being dishonest is acceptable, even if others think otherwise.
“Honesty is a principle, and we have our moral agency to determine how we will apply this principle. We have the agency to make choices, but ultimately we will be accountable for each choice we make. We may deceive others, but there is One we will never deceive. From the Book of Mormon we learn, “The keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name.”” – Honesty—a Moral Compass by James E. Faust
