Honesty Establishes Crediblity

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.”  -Thomas Jefferson

Authors know that if they grasp the audience’s attention in the first chapter, they will read the rest of the story.  Honesty establishes credibility: because others must first trust you before they will continue turning the pages to listen to you.  Likewise we must be honest with God and repent of our sins before He will hear our prayers. 

We are careful to be honorable before the Lord, but we also want everyone else to see that we are honorable.  -2 Corinthians 8:21 (NLT)
