  • Keep a friend's secret
  • Admit you made a mistake
  • Turn in a wallet full of money that you found
Honesty is being sincere, truthful, trustworthy, honorable, fair, genuine, and loyal with integrity.

You guard your honest reputation by constantly practicing honesty.  Like any other habit, honesty must be cultivated.  The more you do it, the more it becomes a part of your nature.  HOW WILL YOU PRACTICE HONESTY THIS WEEK?
