To the Extent That We Turn Our Backs on All Kinds of Theft Because They Are Sins, We Love Honesty (Continued)

“Honesty” also means integrity, fairness, faithfulness, and morality. On our own, we cannot be devoted to these so as to love them for what they are, for their own sakes, but if we turn our backs on deception, guile, and trickery as sins, we have a devotion to these virtues that comes not from ourselves but from the Lord, as explained in Sections 18-31 above. This applies to priests, administrators, judges, merchants, and laborers–to all of us then, in our various roles and tasks.

from Life/Faith, Section 83
