I got this from my daily devotion from Joel Osteen ministries and God has been showing me alot lately about integrity and what people think of me when they hear my name because of the things my husband has done and well I just felt this needed to be passed along:


Live in Integrity

Today's Scripture

“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches…” (Proverbs 22:1).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

What do people think when they hear your name? Do they think, “Oh that person is always so trustworthy and faithful; they always do the right thing.” Or do they think, “Watch out for that person. You never know what they’re going to do.” You might say, “Oh I’m a pretty good person. I do the right thing most of the time.” But understand; it’s the little foxes that spoil the vine. You can veer off course just a little bit, and before you know it, you’re miles away from your destination. Don’t allow the little things to keep you from your destiny. Choose integrity—even when no one is looking. For instance, you might need some paper at home, but you shouldn’t take supplies from the office. Or you might be running into a store for just a minute, but don’t park in the handicap parking spot unless you’re supposed to. Sure, you might need a few extra bucks this week, but if the check-out clerk makes a mistake and gives you back too much money, that’s not God’s provision, that’s a test of integrity. If you’ll be faithful and choose integrity in the little things, it will be a great treasure in your life. God will pour out His blessing on you as you honor Him all the days of your life.

A Prayer for Today

Father God, today I commit to live a life of integrity. I choose a life of excellence and ask for Your hand of favor. Show me any area that is not pleasing to You so that I can continue to grow and increase in You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
