Integrity - "The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. It’s the state of being whole and undivided. A condition of being unified, unimpaired, or sound in construction." Why is Integrity Important?

  • Integrity attracts kindness. It means far more to God to have integrity than to exhibit religious performance. Sometimes the kindness we receive when we hold up our word might not mean anything in the short term, but it does go a long way to attract kindness from God and also from man.

  • Integrity grants favor. A pure and upright heart brings out the best in you. When God searches your heart and finds that your intentions are true you will receive favor. Proverbs 21:3, “To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.”

  • Integrity gives you guidance. Spiritual guidance comes to those with integrity. Proverbs 11:3 says, “The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity”.

  • Integrity ensures security. The choice to help and the choice to be trusted is a choice to be secure. Proverbs 10:9 tells us that “Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.” Practicing integrity will make you become someone with ‘words that can be trusted’.

It does not matter how impossible it might seem, doing what is right and acceptable before God can give you access to God’s favor, kindness, security and guidance. Matthew 5:37 says, “Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Anything beyond this is from the evil one.” So decide today to be trustworthy and maintain your integrity. Do what you can and do it well.
