Living with Integrity

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “God understands our struggle to resist temptation and choose righteousness, and He has sent His Holy Spirit to help us live with integrity.”

Walking blamelessly

Speaking truth from heart

Holding back thy tongue

Integrity starts

 

Drafting one’s beliefs

Adopting God’s Word

Standing by His oath

Integrity heard

 

Living in God’s light

Honoring Him here

Accepting His grace

Integrity steers

 

Submitting to God

Following His lead

Choosing righteousness

Integrity feeds

 

Carrying thy cross

Standing on God’s rock

Forsaking evil

Integrity walks

From Psalm 15:1-5:  “Lord, who may abide in your tent?   Who may dwell on your holy hill?  Those who walk blamelessly, and do what is right, and speak the truth from their heart; who do not slander with their tongue, and do no evil to their friends, nor take up a reproach against their neighbors; in whose eyes the wicked are despised, but who honor those who fear the Lord; who stand by their oath even to their hurt; who do not lend money at interest, and do not take a bribe against the innocent.  Those who do these things shall never be moved.”

  1. I counted “integrity” 46 times in the Bible. When I die, I want folks to be able to say, “She was a woman of faith, a woman who let God’s light shine through her, a woman of integrity.” I try living each day to make those words true! I know you do, too, {{{Richard}}} ❤
