The Light Daily Devotional – Live with Integrity
Focus: Live with Integrity
WORD FOR TODAY
When a man does not have integrity, his title and everything he claims to be is useless and won’t stop him from being disgraceful!
“The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.” Proverbs 11:3 NIV
Sin is a reproach. Only righteousness brings honour. A man becomes an object of reproach each time he chooses not to behold Christ Jesus and to walk in His ways. In every life’s situation be mindful of the fact that your integrity is at stake.
Integrity is your lifestyle people know if you are truly a child of God; if you can sell your birthright for anything, if you can walk in darkness, if you can support any kind of malpractices, if you love righteousness and holiness, if you can hold on to your faith in the midst of intense pressure and cares of this life.
Integrity will be missing in the lives of men in whom the Holy Spirit does not find expression. Paul said: “For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.” (2 Cor 8:21). In this perverse world, you must also try all you can to do what is right both in the sight of God and man. This is the only way you will avoid dragging the name of God in the mud and a stumbling block to those who want to serve God.
+ Hope you are not a stumbling block to men who want to serve God?
Prayers: Lord! Express your nature in me. May I never be a curse in Jesus name. Amen!!
Emphasis: A man without integrity is not only dragging the name of God in the mud but also a stumbling block to men who want to serve God!
Have a Delightful Wednesday!
