Some say that one’s faith is a private matter and should not be spoken of so publicly. (William Wilberforce, 18th-19th century British member of parliament)

He continues: “The fact is those who say such things usually don’t even have a concern for their faith in the privacy of their interior lives.” It’s also true today that some people argue for issues that aren’t consistent with their personal convictions. Again, it’s a matter of personal integrity and honesty. It’s a worthy goal to live so that our lives reveal the true intent of our heart.

Honesty guides good people . . . Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and a fool. (Proverbs 11:3; 19:1)
