Honesty: An Important Trait

Loyalty, humility and kindness are some of the characteristics I find attractive in a person. Aside from these, honesty is an uncommon quality possessed by very few people especially in these trying times.

Last February, we sought for an electrician who can fix the lingering problem of our light fixtures: a flickering pin light even after the bulb was replaced, the diagnosis of two other pin lights, two chandeliers and the replacement of two receptacle holders outdoor. It was quite a job!

Before these were done, I asked around for their professional fees. One charged P500 per light while the other, a hefty P700 per unit. Whoa!

The guy who did all these only charged us P1,000. On top of that he is an experienced electrician and has a certificate course on the subject.  More so, he was honest enough to tell us the problem, what needs replacement and those that can be remedied by tinkering.

Yesterday, I threw a working steam iron which we barely used. My mother and I were once victims of the scheme "as seen on TV" and the seemingly easy way of manipulating the item but once we tried it, it wasn't and regretted buying it! My father saw it and thought of having it repaired. He shared the news today that he managed to have it fixed and did not realized that the man charged him though it was not broken!

"He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much." Luke 16:10
