Heritage of Integrity

Parents who set an example of honest living pass on their legacy to their children. My siblings and I have reputations for honesty. In our local newspaper, my brothers, self-employed businessmen, have had customer reviews attesting to their truthfulness.

My oldest brother, a retired mechanic, received accolades for telling the truth and not doing unnecessary work to make money. My other brothers’ business partners had reviews for their honest pricing and superb masonry work. 

As for myself, the first year my partner and I established our tennis business, we received the Dr. Herman N. Nielson award from the Peninsula Tennis Patrons Association for our work with children, the first women to receive the reward.

All because our parents, people of integrity, modeled integrity to their children. My coal miner dad lived his life for the Lord and taught us to do the same. Praise God.

Live a life of integrity, modeling it for your children and others. Leave them a heritage of integrity.

Lord, thank You for the gift of honest parents dedicated to You.  Help us model them well for our children and others, leaving behind a legacy of integrity. IJNIP. Amen
