Integrity…

...an essential quality.

All of us should aspire to be people of integrity. We stand for what is good and right and we keep our word. Jesus has something to say on this and on God’s position on the matter.

Matthew 21:28-32 (NIV)
28“What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’
29  “‘I will not,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went.
30  “Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but he did not go.
31“Which of the two did what his father wanted?” “The first,” they answered. Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.
32  For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
Do we keep our word in all that we do? Our lifestyle? Our voice? Our actions and plans? I hope so. People of integrity are pretty easy to spot. God sees them too and delights in them.
