I heard a report on the news about a shopping cart gatherer at a store, who found a forgotten purse in a cart. While being tempted by other workers to keep the valuables for himself, he rejected their snare and said, 'My parents and God didn't raise me to steal." True integrity guides us to make the right decisions in this fallen world. "His principles are fixed, his rule is certain, and therefore his way is plain; his sincerity keeps him steady, and he needs not tack about every time the wind turns, having no other end to drive at than to keep a good conscience."
Honesty and trust are key aspects to integrity. Jesus is the perfect example of one with integrity. They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are."
Got integrity? Or do the temptations of the world by people, circumstances and timing stray you away from the narrow way? Remember, the world sees much but God sees all. "Our actions in obeying God show Him more love, honor, and praise than any empty words we might say to try to appear good."
