Integrity is more than just being honest or trustworthy. It’s having strength and consistency, being unwavering in your character.
Proverbs 28:6, “Better is the poor who walks in his integrity than he who is crooked though he be rich.”
God holds character with great importance and He judges your integrity. He hates the lack of it. Weather it is in business or everyday dealings, God calls you to a life of integrity.
Deuteronomy 5:15, “You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”
Why falsify “weights and measures” just to get a deal done or make a little money? It’s not worth what you lose in your character.
A builder describes a structure as having integrity when it is unwavering, consistent, and solid, much like a person who has the same quality.
God tries your heart and delights in your uprightness as integrity is also protection against evil. Scripture addresses this in Matthew, Proverbs, and the Psalms.
Matthew 5:37, “Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”
Proverbs 2:7-8, “He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.”
Psalm 7:8, “Vindicate me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.”
Integrity isn’t something you can try on and take off like a garment when it’s convenient – it must be the moral fiber that weaves you together and makes you who you are. Incorruptible, stable, consistent, and steadfast – this is the kind of integrity that should be your way of life.
