The opposite of truthfulness leads in one direction, deception.
Leaders are challenged to be honest enough with themselves to make the kind of decisions that demonstrate integrity.
Truthfulness will not allow us to be self-centered. As leaders, we can fall prey to justifying our actions and convincing ourselves something is true, when in reality it is false. This happens when we neglect to recognize our inward focus.
Leaders must be careful not to allow good intentions to vindicate pretentious actions.
Be truthful with self, others, and God in all areas.
