Never Misrepresent Your Product

'...Provide things honest in the sight of all men.' Romans 12:17 KJV


The truth will always surface. 
'He who covers his sins will not prosper' (Proverbs 28:13 NKJV). 
Anyone who does business with you wants to know the truth - the whole truth.
Jesus had the greatest product on earth: salvation. 
He offered the human race an opportunity to have a relationship with God.  
He even promised them a home in Heaven.  
But He never painted a distorted picture.  
After talking about the advantages of following Him, He spelled out the challenges. 
'You will be hated by all nations for My name's sake' (Matthew 24:9 NKJV). 
Jesus offered people more than a pie-in-the-sky philosophy. 
He believed in preparing people for every possible situation that could arise. 
In an age when bankers and businessmen twist the truth to enhance the bottom line.

God calls on you to be honest, even to your own hurt.

If you represent God, and if you want to experience His blessing, you must do business His way. 

An honest relationship is worth more than a hundred sales. 

Your integrity will be remembered longer than your product.

Thomas Jefferson said, 
'The whole art of government consists in the art of being honest.
In the Bible, God's people were largely an agricultural community.

So God laid it on the line:
'Do not use dishonest standards when measuring length, weight or quantity' (Leviticus 19:35 NIV). 
John Parnell wrote, 
'It matters not what you do, make a nation or a shoe. For he who does an honest thing, in God's pure sight is ranked a king.'
