There is this story of a guy who have been seeking for job for a long time, fortunately for him, he met a C.E.O of a company who he rendered a little help to when his car breaked down on the road. The man discovered that he is a little bit education, so he ask for his qualifications, he said he doesn't attend secondary school, but the man decided to help him irrespective of his level.
So, he was called for interview, meanwhile they were so many people that came for the interview.
He was a man that was obviously qualified for the job(gate keeper), but because of the influence the other guy has, he was given the job.
At the compound of the company, some of the interviewee saw an envelope full of dollars. He was shocked and immediately he called the attention of some staff, they were so marvelled by what he did and they ask for his details assuring him of the job.
So they decided to play a trick on the other interviewee to test their honesty.
Then, the guy that was given the job came out of the company, he sighted the money and immediately he changed his walking posture. He looked here and there to be sure that no one is watching, so he picked the money. The staffs who was hiding came out and met him with the money.
He was disgraced and sent out of the company. Dishonesty and greediness has made him to loose his job.
Well, it might not be physical, and that is the most reason why we need to pray against that spirit.
Honesty has a great reward and places you higher than you expected.

Honesty, as most of us already know is an act of being truthful and trust worthy at all times. A man that is honest, gives himself a medal of honor that many wouldn't forget him.

I remember a story of a young man, who was sent for an interview in a particular city. He was instructed by the Boss of the company to go and get some amount of money from a company the Boss's company is in partnership with. When the young man got to the other company, the boss of the other company told him that he can take some amount of money from the money he is about to issued,saying it is normal, everybody does it, your boss wouldn't find out. The young man had lots of thoughts, he was in debt with some people, he is broke as at that time, but he had good virtue and is a man of moral integrity. He didn't reply the boss that gave him the money, but rather said "thank you" and left the occasion. As at the time he went back to his own company, he gave the money to his own boss. The boss smiled, and told him he is grateful, that it is a huge amount of money that was given to him, he said the exact amount of money to the young man. Although, the Boss told him to go back to do his normal routine. The following day, the Boss called on him, told him he is proud of him, and has made the company's ego a good one. He said the other boss of the other company told him everything, of how he wanted to lure the young man to take some amount of money that nobody will know, but rather the young man replied saying just "thank you". The other boss from the other company called his own boss and asked to verify if the young man took some amount of money from the large amount of money issued to him, the boss said "No, he has counted it, and it is the exact same that is there". The boss then appreciated the young man, bought a new house for him, catered for all his demands and gave him 30% of the money that he sent him to collect.
The moral of the story is that we should be truthful at all times and be of integrity, no matter the situation. At the sole end, there are fruitful rewards that awaits patient and truthful people.

**The pursuit of Excellence is gratifying and healthy **
