Just rewards.

Corrupting others leads to destruction. Taking advantage of someone’s naivete and causing them to head in the wrong direction has consequences. Everyone has weaknesses that can lead to corruptible behavior, but those who walk with integrity will find victory in Jesus.

Preparing for a mission trip, I ordered several tops from Amazon. World events cause the leaders to cancel the trip. As a result, I spent a morning returning all the items I’d purchased. I couldn’t find one shirt and thought it hadn’t arrived, so I reported the issue to Amazon, who promptly refunded the money.

However, I found the shirt hours later. “Free shirt,” I thought at first, but then, thinking of my husband’s integrity, I contacted Amazon, informing them of the mistake. 

If my husband had been the opposite kind of person who didn’t mind breaking rules and taking freebies, I might have made a different choice. Thank God I married a man who helps me walk with integrity.

Lead people on the path of integrity; don’t corrupt them. Rewards don’t come to those who cause others to fall.

Lord, forgive us for succumbing to corruption. Please place people in our lives who will lead us on the path of integrity. IJNIP. Amen
