How to fix Android phone displaying different times on taskbar and widgets?

I use Beautiful Widgets for my on-screen clock on my S4, but often the time is different between it and that on the clock in the taskbar at the top of the screen. The taskbar clock displays the correct time. Does anyone know how to make the widget and taskbar display the same, correct time?

Wstark has a good answer for this. For other questions, see the Android support site:

Toggle off/on airplane mode and see if that resolves it. If it doesn't, open Beautiful Widgets and go into Widget Configurations>Widget Settings. You should see an option to "use local time." Toggle this setting to off, and it should use system time instead of whatever source it is using currently. Hope this helps.
