LIVE WITH INTEGRITY
It is so important that as a people of God, we live with integrity. I would argue strongly that we do not hear that word used too often. Nevertheless, it is essential that we are people marked by our integrity. It is not so much about what we say, but what we do. Our character means a great deal to God and to the people whom we encounter. We cannot really claim to be children of God if our character does not exemplify that. The scripture reference is found in Psalm 119:1 and reads in this manner:
“Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord.”
The psalmist speaks of the joy that is in the hearts of people who walk with integrity. For the people who follow the instructions of the Lord, he continues that God blesses those who obey His law and search with all their hearts. They do not compromise with evil, but walk in the way of the Lord. The psalmist yearns to be the kind of man whose life will be lived in such a way that he will obey the law of the Lord. he says that he will thank God by the way he lives. I love the song that says, “Let my life praise you.” That is another way of saying that I want to live with integrity. Prayerfully, today, you are praising God with a life that speaks volumes about your integrity.
