Personal Integrity

By: Joyce Meyer



When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright will guide them, but the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

                                                                                             Proverbs 11:2-3



We live in a society that has so lost its sense of moral values that common decency is often not even practiced. Our world no longer honors God and is not concerned about integrity. Whether it involves cheating or committing fraud or specking half-truths and exaggerations that lead others to believe something that is not true, our culture is saturated with the lies of the enemy.
As believers, we live in the world but are not to be of the world (John 17:11,14). If we want to walk in confidence, we cannot compromise our integrity and act as the world does. Integrity is “affirm adherence to a code or standard of values.” Our code is the Word of God. There are certain things we wouldn’t even think of doing, but there are too many compromises, even in the lives of God’s people. There are things we do that Jesus would not do, and He is our standard of integrity.
Integrity is being committed to a life of excellence, as our God is excellent. It is doing the right thing every time, no matter what it costs us.
