“Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles, moral uprightness,” according to the Webster dictionary.
A person with integrity is whole and undivided. They don’t allow external forces to dictate how they should behave with other people in life. Their moral principles take precedence before allowing the opinions (and perceptions) of others to dictate how they behave in this world.
Don’t be a person without integrity. Be yourself and fight the temptation to give up your morals for the fear or acceptance of what others think. Have your own stances and principles. Resist peer pressure and evil schemes. You are so much better than that, are you not?
Maybe we should look at what the Bible says about integrity…
In proverbs 11:3 we learn, “The integrity of the upright guides them. But the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.”
As Christians, we need to be more Christlike… have more integrity as Christ did. Strong man and woman can deal with misfortunes and always find a way to do what they love with minimum interruption, especially if God is with them.
It’s pointless to believe otherwise…
Evil schemes are easy to reverse engineer. Non-verbal behaviors and mediated messages (or silence) reveal much in any communication exchange. We cannot not communicate!
Be like Jesus and resist any activity that may have a negative impact on your integrity. A Christian without integrity is in vain.
