“The integrity of the upright will guide them, but the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.”
This is a very important characteristic that very few people ever acquire, which is a very sad thing considering I am talking about pastors and leaders in our local churches. But when it is acquired, you will be set free from the control of others as well as yourself, and you will realize what trust is all about.
Better is a poor man who walks in integrity than one who is perverse in his lips.
Jesus said let your "yes" be "yes" and your "no" be "no". Most leaders know how to say yes, but very few know how to say no, therefore they are unable to walk in the character that is needed in order to a person of integrity.
We will be challenged in the area of our integrity in three areas... Money, Relationships and EGO or Fame.
