Integrity

If integrity is keeping your word, walking your talk, living a life consistent with what you profess or claim to believe, then I think there is need for integrity today, especially among those of us who claim to be believers in God.

We claim to believe in God but act differently most times. When we are under pressure, we seek solutions everywhere but with God. If we truly believe that God exists and that he rewards those who diligently seek him, integrity requires that we stick our necks out and stand by what we believe. We claim to believe in the document that says “Some trust in chariots, some in horses but we will remember the name of the Lord our God” but we act like we trust in chariots and horses.

It is amazing that unbelievers have more integrity than “believers”. Those who believe there is no God act more in line with their faith than those who claim to believe there is God. I think it is hypocrisy when we Christians claim there is God and act differently. Our actions speak louder than our words. We need to learn from unbelievers, whose actions agree with their words, most times.

If we truly believe God exists, let’s act it. Otherwise, let’s junk this whole God thing and talk only our walk. That is integrity.

This integrity thing speaks to me. I have proved God most of my little life, even though I am just a layman, presently an entrepreneur with full intentions of remaining in that noble calling. The existence of God may be a question for some but not for me, because I am proof myself that God exists and that he rewards those who seek him diligently. However, I am presently at a point that requires a deeper level of walk with God and a higher level of proof.

My faith is centered in One who I believe is the same yesterday, today and forever. Integrity therefore requires that if I believed yesterday, I must believe today and will believe tomorrow.
