566 God Blesses Those Who Are Honest

I

Honesty means giving your heart to God,

being genuine with God in all things,

being open with Him in all things,

never hiding the facts,

not deceiving those above and below you,

and not doing things only to curry favor with God.

In short, to be honest is to be pure in your actions and words,

and to deceive neither God nor man.

If your words are riddled with excuses and valueless justifications,

then God says you are someone

who is loath to put the truth into practice.


II

If you have many confidences that you are reluctant to share,

if you’re highly averse to laying bare

your secrets—your difficulties—before others

to seek the way of the light,

God says you will not easily attain salvation

and emerge from the darkness.

If you really enjoy seeking the way of the truth,

then you are someone who dwells always in the light.

If you really enjoy seeking the way of the truth,

then you are someone who dwells always in the light,

always in the light.


III

If you are glad to be a service-doer in God’s house,

working diligently in obscurity,

always giving and never taking,

then God says you are a loyal saint,

for you seek no reward, just seek to be honest.

If you are willing to be candid,

and willing to expend your all,

if you can sacrifice your life for God

and stand firm in your testimony,

if you are honest to the point where you know only to satisfy God

and not to consider or take for yourself,

then God says that such people are those who are nourished in the light

and who shall live forever in the kingdom, in the kingdom.
