Promises about integrity

Integrity is honesty, and honesty is a big part of being a follower of Christ.  There is a lot of dishonesty in this world today and we don't want to be a part of it, do we?  Or do we?  Let's be honest with ourselves, there are so many ways we can be dishonest, I won't name them but you know what they are, but God will make our lives, lives of integrity if we allow Him to.  It's our choice of whether we want Him to or not.  Here's some encouragement.

Proverbs 16:7  "When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him."

Jeremiaih 17:9,10  "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it?  I, the Lord search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings."

Psalm 41:12  "As for me, You uphold me in my integrity, and set me before Your face forever."

Titus 2:7,8   "In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you."

Integrity, honesty is a very important aspect of the Christian's life and it even makes his enemies to be at peace with him.  It causes us to be a pattern of good works, showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech, it makes those who oppose us to be ashamed so that they have no evil to accuse us of.  What a beautiful life is involved in integrity.  God has promised to uphold us in our integrity and set us before His face forever.   I want to live a life like this don't you?  Grandma Joan.
