Honest weights and scales are the Lord’s; all the weights in the bag are His work. Proverbs 16:11
Online romance scams took more than five hundred million dollars from victims in 2021. Often the scammers’ lives seem mysterious and intriguing to the victims, and the interactions and requests for money occur without the individuals ever meeting in person.
Those of us who know Christ aren’t interested in scamming anyone. We’re committed to honesty and integrity. But think of this: When we gossip about someone, we’re robbing them of their reputation. When we miss an appointment, we’re taking their time. When we don’t help them in time of need, we’re robbing them—and ourselves—of a blessing.
When we live in obedience to God’s commands and manifest the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, our lives will display integrity. We will reflect Christ in all we say and do. Ask the Lord to help you live a life of greater integrity every day.
Integrity characterizes the entire person, not just part of him. He is righteous and honest through and through. He is not only that inside, but also in his outer actions. R. Kent Hughes
