1. Honesty at home

Proverbs 12:22 – Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.

Truth is truth and half-truth is dishonesty. It’s similar to “one multiplied by zero” is still zero. Probity is the quality of having strong moral principles, honesty, and decency. Remember, God sees all and He blesses those to whom he delights. He will reward you accordingly.

Keeping your promise is a form of discipline. Thus if you promised to yourself, to your parents or teachers that you will study, you will because you are a person who keeps his/her promise.
