Devotional: Integrity and Justice
Christian Women's Devotion on having Integrity
We are to be honest in our business dealings.
Even in what seems to us to be small matters,
and nobody will be bothered by it. But even in
the small things, we need to have complete
honesty and integrity.
There are lots of areas where people don't
mind bending the law. They reason that it's
a minor thing and nobody would ever know -
and besides, everyone does it! But God knows.
He knows the secrets of the heart.
You see, I believe to God these things are never
small, nor gone unnoticed. We need to obey the law
of the land. We need to be 'aboveboard' in all things.
My way of thinking is that by doing something
that is even slightly dishonest in the Lord's
eyes, just because we can get away with it,
can hinder what God would do in us and through
us in the future. I'm always mindful of that.
I personally don't want anything that God would
do in my life to be hindered. There's too much to
lose by moving the boundaries - even if it's slight.
Don't let anything become a stumbling block for what God would do in your life!

For we take thought beforehand and aim to be
honest and absolutely above suspicion, not
only in the sight of the Lord but also in
the sight of men. - 2 Corinthians 8:21 (AMPC)
Lord, I pray that I will have
Integrity in my life
And be just in all my dealings,
Honouring the name of Christ.
