Integrity is a virtue that is fast becoming almost non-existent in today’s world. Most people are more concerned about the quickest way to succeed rather than taking time to train and develop themselves. Also, the lack of integrity is the reason for compromise.
Integrity refers to the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. To have integrity is to be upright, sincere and honourable, and to maintain your guiding principles without succumbing to external pressure.
It is a personal choice to hold oneself to moral and ethical standards. It is the consistency of character over a period of time and it is based on an internally consistent framework of principles.
According to the renowned author C.S Lewis, it is doing the right thing even when no one is watching – the opposite being hypocrisy.
The mind-set of integrity often proceeds from an understanding that God is watching and He values integrity. He values men who are upright in their ways and keep their integrity regardless of their situation.
And as we see in our opening text, men who walk in integrity are guided in the right part. They are also preserved as we see in Psalms 25 vs 21.
Therefore, as you navigate your way daily in your organization or business, choose to walk with integrity. Remember, God is watching, that He may show himself strong on your behalf. (2Chron 16:9).
