The integrity and moral courage of the upright will guide them, But the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them. Proverbs 11:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I have experienced in my own personal life the benefits of having Godly integrity. Integrity means adherence to moral and ethical principals and being honest. The best place to learn and incorporate integrity is in the Bible under the tutorship of the Holy Spirit. He has never led me wrong.
Yes many times it seemed as if I was standing alone against an overwhelming strong number but stood my ground.
I may not have gained physically but certainly gained tremendously in my relationship with my Heavenly Beloved (which is all that matters to me).
Yes most times it took courage but it also took the power of the Holy Spirit to help me have the strength and fortitude to stand upon the rock of righteousness when all was against me. We have all heard the saying:short term pain for long time gain.
As well I have witnessed the opposite. Short term gain for long time loss. I have witnessed many treacherous folks take unscrupulous means to get gain only to lose it all and suffer worse than when they began when the time of righteousness comes a calling.
I take the high ground because it ultimately leads to Heaven. All others lead to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah.
Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with Your wise tutorship to learn and incorporate into my life Your Divine integrity. It has blessed me with avoiding much pain and sorrow in my life and has brought me ever closer to You as You continue to instruct me in the path of righteousness. I exalt You in the name of He who always walked in righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
