Honesty is the Best Policy

Emma Talley

Emma Talley has dominated Kentucky high school girls’ golf for the past 4 years. Last Saturday, the Caldwell County senior won the state tournament for the third time in the past four years. Talley would have won 4 in a row if not for signing an incorrect scorecard in 2009 after finishing first by 6 shots. She pointed out the error herself, and was disqualified.

It’s easy to tell the truth when it doesn’t cost us anything. However, if being honest requires us to give up a prize, an honor or our pride and self-esteem, then the truth can be hard to come by.

God wants us to be completely truthful. It’s right there in the 10 Commandments (Exodus 20:16).

Honesty is the best policy for a thriving church. Ephesians 4:15-16 says, “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”
