Introduction:

"Honesty is the best policy."  Although the saying is wide spread; the practice is
not.  There is a need for honesty in the world: from those in the world, and
especially from Christians.  Honesty is "part and parcel" of righteousness.  This is
clearly seen in the Proverbs (10:9; 11:3,5; 15:21; 19:1; 20:7; 21:3; 28:6).  There
is a crying need to reinforce this truth in today's society.

Conclusion:

Honesty is the best policy.  In the case of Christianity, it is the only policy.  If
honesty is eliminated, righteousness and holiness is eliminated.  We must speak
honestly, act honestly and believe honestly.  That means we must be first honest
with ourselves, and then honest with all men.
