Quotes from this episode: Perhaps the surest test of an individual’s integrity is his refusal to do or say anything that would damage his self-respect.
Thomas S. Monson
Be honest with yourself and others at all times. Being honest means choosing not to lie, steal, cheat, or deceive in any way. When you are honest, you build strength of character that will allow you to be of great service to others. You will experience peace of mind and self-respect. You will be trusted by the those you know.
Dishonesty harms you and harms others as well. If you lie, steal, shoplift, or cheat, you damage your reputation and your relationships with others. Being honest will enhance your future opportunities. Be honest at school; choose not to cheat in any way. Be honest in your job, giving a full amount of work for your pay. Do not rationalize that being dishonest is acceptable, even though others may think it does not matter.
Closely associated with honesty is integrity. Integrity means thinking and doing what is right at all times, no matter what the consequences. When you have integrity, you are willing to live by your standards and beliefs even when no one is watching. Choose to live so that your thoughts and behavior are always in harmony with basic truths.
