Be Honest in Our Dealings With Our Fellow Man

Today I read Proverbs 11 which is about being honest with your fellow men.  This is something that mankind, at least Americans, have a challenge with.  We have a challenge with giving a full days labor to our employer.  We are constantly thinking of ways we can get ahead and don't shy away from using any tactic to do so.  Our entertainment industry is full of those who have risen to the top by deceitful means.  The list goes on and on.  When we stand before God, He won't care how much we earned each year.  He won't care about how famous we were in the world or any other worldly accolade.  What He will care about, is if we achieved all that we have in an honest fashion.  He case if we were good and upstanding citizens of our world, nation and community.  He cares if we helped those that are around us.  He will want to know that we left the world a better place than we found it.  And if that is what He cares about, isn't it what we should care about too?  Until tomorrow.
