Daily Reminder on Honesty and Integrity: #9 out of 21

Today I, ____________________, will be honest with myself, others, and God at all times.

“Being honest means choosing not to lie, steal, cheat, or deceive in any way.” – For the Strength of Youth

Today and over the next two weeks, I, ____________________, will not lie, I will not steal, I will not cheat, and I will not deceive in any way.


“We all need to know what it means to be honest. Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving. John, a nine-year-old Swiss pioneer child who was in one of the handcart companies, is an example of honesty. His father put a chunk of buffalo meat in the handcart and said it was to be saved for Sunday dinner. John said, “I was so very hungry and the meat smelled so good to me while pushing at the handcart that I could not resist. I had a little pocket knife. … Although I expected a severe whipping when father found it out, I cut off little pieces each day. I would chew them so long that they got white and perfectly tasteless. When father came to get the meat he asked me if I had been cutting off some of it. I said ‘Yes. I was so hungry I could not let it alone.’ Instead of giving me a scolding or whipping, father turned away and wiped tears from his eyes.”” – Honesty—a Moral Compass by James E. Faust
