He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God his Savior. Psalm 24: 4-5
Reputation is what others think you are; character is what God knows you are. And when your reputation and character are both blameless, you have integrity—the ring of authenticity in the life of the child of God.
Integrity is behaving in the dark just as you would in the light. It is being what you say you are and doing what you said you would even when no one is watching. It is consistency of character, with no hidden agenda or twisted motive.
Integrity is what causes you to tell the truth, regardless of how tempting it might be to shade the truth. When you are squeezed what comes out? If you squeeze a lemon, lemon juice comes out. Under pressure when you are squeezed does love, joy, peace, patience, thankfulness, faithfulness, gentleness, and gratitude come out?
Lord I want to seek your Kingdom and your righteousness today. Fill me with your wisdom and discernment. Guide and direct all my ways and lead me on your path of righteousness.
