Consistently doing the right thing equals walking with integrity. Choosing to tell the truth, no matter the consequences will lead to a life of integrity. God blesses the effort and protects us when we do.

My friend’s son has permission to hunt on his neighbor’s property with one condition, don’t shoot any bucks. Imagine Joseph’s surprise when he hit a young buck with barely visible horns. Faced with an ethical dilemma, he walked with integrity.

Marching to his neighbor’s front door and told him what happened. “I understand if you no longer want me to hunt on your property.”

Joseph’s neighbor showed him grace. Appreciating his honesty, he understood the situation and forgave him.

Walking in integrity requires telling the truth to the best of your ability. When you do, God protects you and blesses your efforts.

Lord, thank You for your protection of our lives. Forgive us for faltering; help us to walk in integrity, day after day. Let Your shield protects us as we honor and serve You.  IJNIP. Amen
