Daily Reading: Leviticus 11:1-12:8, Mark 5:21-43, Psalm 38:1-22, Proverbs 10:8-9

Daily Verse: “Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.” Prov. 10:9

Integrity takes intention.

Ron and I play a fun golfing game: the first one on the green, closest to the pin, and first one in the cup, three points per hole up for grabs. If your approach shot lands on the green and rolls off, you immediately lose 2 points.

Playing a couple of weeks ago, my approach shot landed on the green, rolling into the water on the other side, costing two points. Ron gave me a point I didn’t deserve when he said the score.

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” Luke 16:10

My internal struggle to tell the truth, lasted the entire walk to the next hole. Not until then did I correct the score, so badly wanting the undeserved point. But then I remembered Jesus’ words and followed His commands.

Small moments determine integrity. Paths become crooked one decision at a time.

Lord, forgive us the times we haven’t acted with integrity. Please help us make better decisions today. Give us the courage to speak the truth always and with love. IJNIP. Amen
