Topic: The Reward of Integrity
Proverbs 22:1, NIV – A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
Joel Osteen 15th February 2021 Devotional Message
Your reputation is one of the most valuable things you have. You can have great riches and yet be despised, looked down on, and seen as shady. But when you’re a person of integrity, other people say, I can trust them. They always do the right thing. They’re honest, fair, and consistent. They don’t talk one way and live another way. Your name is too important to let it become tarnished by not having integrity.
A life of integrity will take you much further than being dishonest and manipulating. You can’t fudge on your taxes or turn in an exaggerated expense account and expect God’s favor. You may gain some material things, but you lose with God. He controls the universe. There’s a lot we can get away with, hide, manipulate, and exaggerate. People may not see it, but God does. Anything you gain without integrity won’t be what it should have been. Be honest. Be trustworthy. Be a person of your word.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are not limited to seeing me as other people see me. Thank You that You see my heart, and You know my faithfulness to You. Help me to live a life of integrity. I want my life to stand out as one who brings You praise. In Jesus Name, Amen.
