Integrity: The Hold of Character and the Cure of Inconsistency

Integrity means belief, character and conduct in harmony with God. It is the soundness of moral character. A person with integrity knows what God is interested in and is committed to it. He consistently lives according to that vision.
Integrity involves more than living our values but subscribing to God’s values and with His help, learning to conform ourselves to those values. It is a solid foundation of a man’s life which stands strong irrespective of the circumstances. Gal. 5;19.
– It is the basic element of Christian character. Psalm 15:2
– The first characteristic that distinguishes godly leadership is integrity. Psalm 78;72
– It is not determined by situations and circumstances. 1 Peter 1:13.
A person with integrity of heart is a morally and spiritually healthy individual. It has to do with a sense of consistency between a person’s inner values and his outward words and actions. The more consistent we are, the higher the degree of integrity we possess. It helps us to know what to expect from others. The more consistent the person is, the more confidence we have in how they will behave in the future.
Not only does God bless us when we live a life of integrity, future generations also will benefit from it. Psalm 24:3-5; Pro. 28:20. We will add value to the lives of others and gain their confidence as they trust us.
