Integrity means, “the quality of having strong ethical or moral principles and following them at all times, no matter who’s watching. A person with integrity acts with honesty, honor, and truthfulness.”
Our verse of the day comes from Psalm 26:1-3.
“Vindicate me, Lord, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the Lord and have not faltered. Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness.”
This is a Psalm of David, and it begins with David entrusting himself to God’s perfect justice. David asks God to vindicate him, to take account of David’s moral integrity, and judge him on that basis.
Like David, if we too are honest, we recognize our integrity is not perfect. And like David, we should be asking God to examine our heart (seat of emotions/affections and the active inner person) and mind (seat of knowledge and understanding).
Is it our best intention to follow the Lord? Will God find that we are all in for Him?
God is the determiner of one’s integrity.
Invite the Lord to analyze your life, and repair that which is broken.
