I just got done reading about a group of best selling authors who engaged in ... well let's say ... a rather questionable activity. In an order to boost the sale of their own books, they would register on a site such as Amazon under a pseudonym. Then they would proceed to write glowing reviews of their own works while offering harsh criticism of the books of their rivals (If you want to read more about this, click here).

This, of course, is an obvious lack of integrity. But it does not really surprise me. For integrity is a rapidly diminishing virtue in our world today. But for those of us who follow Jesus, we must buck this trend. We must strive (by God's grace) to be men and women whose walk matches their talk. People who are honest and authentic. Not perfect, of course ... but consistent! And when we make integrity a goal of our lives, God promises blessing (Proverbs 10:9, 11:3, 20:7, 28:6).

How about you? Are you seeking to be a man or woman of integrity? I hope you are. Our world could use a bigger dose of it!

Thanks for stopping by . . .
