Integrity is hard to define. In the dictionary, it’s defined as “sticking to moral and ethical principles.” In everyday life, integrity is defined as being honest and trustworthy. If we base integrity off of these 2 definitions, we end up living our lives based on a moral truth of our choosing and hoping others see us as trustworthy and right. Both of these definitions are right, yet, at the same time, incomplete. Integrity is so much more.

True integrity is simply this- living and speaking based on what God says is right. Integrity means basing our words and actions off of His principles and truth. Not our favorite commentator or news caster. Why is it based on God’s set of principles? Because He is the author of everything right and true. When we live our lives claiming that God is our creator, we have to understand that He created us to live based on His standards of truth.

He created us to receive our moral and ethical principles from Him. Any other place we find our values or truth are man-made opinions, and therefore not true integrity nor entirely trustworthy. His truth is the only thing that will lead us to a life of integrity. So, living with integrity means saying yes to what God says is right and good, no matter the consequences. Remember, right is always right no matter who is against it and wrong is always wrong no matter who is for it.

Integrity is more precious than riches and more important than our comfort. Identifying and believing that God’s Word is the only standard by which to evaluate and develop our core values is the first step in developing integrity. Determine today to open your heart to a lifestyle of integrity, knowing what it is and where it truly comes from.
