All through scripture we can identify the importance of integrity. In the sinful world we live in today, it is obvious that our integrity is imperfect. Perfect integrity can be found in Jesus, and through him we are able to aim towards true integrity for ourselves.
Proverbs 12:22 The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.
I see the difficulty in today’s world. We have such a hard time having our Yes mean Yes and our No mean No. During this Financial Responsibility year – I want my yes to mean yes and people to see that I have integrity.
So I am done paying the bills this week and the coupons come flying in for Meat Bundles, joining SAM’s Club and Fresh Meals delivered to your door. Then I begin to wander in my thinking that it would save us money having meals delivered, or joining SAM’s club will really save me money. When my temptation to buy things I do not need are there. It also makes me think about the games I play on facebook and the few dollars are spend on those games. So this week – I will not spend another dime on games. Let me tell you next week how that goes.
I want to be trustworthy and respected for my word.
2 Corinthians 8:21
For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man.
