The value of integrity


Chapter 19 of Proverbs begins by telling us that the poor who walks in integrity is better off than he who speaks with perversity, who is really a fool.  What is integrity and how do we attain it?

  • an undivided or unbroken completeness or totality with nothing wanting; “the integrity of the nervous system is required for normal development …
  • moral soundness
  • or, integrity is the way we behave when no one is watching.

How do we achieve integrity?  I will tell you with all honesty that the more you immerse yourself in God’s Word, in the life of Jesus, the more you walk as Jesus walked, the greater will be your integrity.  It is nearly impossible to act outside of integrity when we live everyday with Jesus.

more to come…
