What is Integrity

Psalms 26:1-2
(1) A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
(2) Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is looking. Integrity means giving your employer an honest 8 hours work for 8 hours pay. Integrity is attending church(if not quarantined) even if your relatives decide to plan an event on Sunday. It is never separating the life you live from the words you speak.

Someone once said, “Integrity is keeping my committment even when the circumstances surrounding my commitment have changed.” As Christians, our commitment is first to Jesus Chirst. No matter if the circumstances surrounding our lives have changed, we must keep our integrity by staying true to our Lord.

One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised. Ask yourself these questions, “What does it take to stop me from serving God?” or, “What does it take to make me compromise one of my beliefs?”

If someone tried to ruin your Christian reputation, would you compromise a belief and start talking badly about them? If your parents got a divorce, would you give up on God altogether? If your family quarrels, will you forget God’s omniscience and start blaming Him for giving you a dysfunctional family?

Integrity is mentioned 16 times in the Bible, Five times that integrity is mentioned, it is referring to walking in integrity. Five other times it is mentioned, it refers to the integrity of the heart. We get integrity by maintaining a consistent walk with God from the heart.

Job is one of the best examples of a man with integrity. He allowed God to prove him, and through his integrity, he not only proved his love to God, but he also received 10 times the blessing. Can your life be characterized by integrity?
