THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
CHOOSE INTEGRITY IN THE LITTLE THINGS, AND GOD WILL MAKE YOU RULER OVER MUCH
INTEGRITY is a powerful ATTRIBUTE in the life of the believer. Integrity means that you are DEPENDABLE. You are a person of your word. You’re CONSISTENT and HONEST.
You might say, “Oh, I’m a pretty good person. I do the right thing most of the time.” But understand, it’s the little foxes that spoil the vine. You can veer off course just a little bit, and before you know it, you’re MILES away from your destination. Don’t allow the little things to keep you from your DESTINY; choose INTEGRITY—even when no one is looking. For instance, you might need some paper at home, but you shouldn’t take supplies from the office. Or, you might be running into a store for just a minute, but don’t park in the handicap parking spot unless you’re supposed to. If the checkout clerk makes a mistake and gives you too much money back, that’s NOT God’s provision, that’s a TEST of integrity!
Remember, if you’ll be FAITHFUL and choose INTEGRITY in the little things, God will make you ruler over MUCH. Be a person of INTEGRITY and open the door for God’s BLESSING and HONOR, ALL the days of your life!
“The Lord judges the people; judge me, O Lord, and do me justice according to my righteousness [my rightness, justice, and right standing with You] and according to the integrity that is in me.”
Psalm 7:8, AMPC
