Integrity? What’s that?

For 2015: the greatest adjustment we could make in our lives would be to walk in greater integrity.

What does it require?

What does it reward?

Integrity is an interesting and increasingly rare concept and as we look around us, check some recent history, we’ve seen high profile “international” people lying blatantly to the entire world –  we’ve seen horrific deaths on the streets of our nation with almost zero accountability – we have heard the mouths of our sports heroes wrap their lips around lies – we have seen the mighty fallen.  Unfortunately life has a way of “weighing and measuring” us all, and if we’ve been lying, we will be found out.  God does actually promise that.

 

integrity or ethics concept

Proverbs 10:9 (NKJV)

He who walks with integrity walks securely,
But he who perverts his ways will become known.

 

I hear people’s voice say . . . what kind of mean God is that?

It has little to do with God, it’s more to do with what seeds we have sown along the way of life.  OK God did create “seed time and harvest” i.e. we reap what we sow.

 

So . . .  What do we need to do?

We need to BE who we say we ARE!

Did you get that?  Read it again!

 

You see if we (for instance) lie to save face in front of our children, or our board room, or our significant other, or our audience, or our friends, or our co-workers, they learn to do exactly that, or are completely repelled by us (nice work!).  And I think we have a generation coming on us that want authenticity and aren’t necessarily seeing it in their Mom’s and Dad’s or Bosses or Government.  This is the most important legacy to leave our kids and this world – an environment of truth, faithfulness and love.  Integrity.

 

Proverbs 20:7 (NKJV)

The righteous man walks in his integrity;
His children are blessed after him.

 

So 2015: treat everyone well, no secrets, no lying, honor your word, walk in integrity – walk strong – walk upright – walk forgiven, walk following the Son in a visibly clear way, and it all come together.

Jesus IS Amazing!
