Live in Intregity

“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches…” – Proverbs 22:1

What do people think when they hear your name? Do they think, “Oh, that person is always so trustworthy and faithful; they always do the right thing?” Or do they think, “Watch out for that person. You never know what they’re going to do?”

You might say, “Oh, I’m a pretty good person. I do the right thing most of the time.” But understand it’s the little foxes that spoil the vine. You can veer off course just a little bit, and before you know it, you’re miles away from your destination. Don’t allow the little
things to keep you from your destiny; choose integrity–even when no one is looking. For instance, you might need some paper at home, but you shouldn’t take supplies from the office. Or, you might be running into a store for just a minute, but don’t park in the no parking spot unless you’re supposed to. Sure, you might need a few extra bucks this week, but if the checkout clerk makes a mistake and gives you back too much money, that’s not God’s provision; that’s a test of integrity. If you’ll be faithful and choose integrity in the little things, it will be a great treasure in your life. God will pour out His blessing on you as you honor Him all the days of your life.
