Today’s Scripture Selection: Psalm 25:21

“May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.”

Integrity matters.

There are so many that seem to want to take short cuts in life.

They cut corners or tell a little white lie.

They find ways to justify things they know, deep down, they really shouldn’t justify.

They rationalize.

They blame.

And everyone gets hurt a little in the process – sometimes more than a little – because integrity matters.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I am not sitting here, self-righteously pointing the finger.

I’ve done my own share of cutting corners, telling a little white lie, justifying un-justifiable things, rationalizing, and blaming.  I’m human – so I’ve done all that at one time or another.

And, I’d guess that – if you are honest – you would have to say you have done it too.

Still, integrity matters.

So let’s do what the Psalmist was unashamed to do.

Let’s ask God for help.

Let’s seek what we need from God to be able to do it.

Even if in the past we haven’t.

And our world will be just a little better for it.

Prayer: Lord, help me to be one in whom you  see integrity.  AMEN.
