FROM THE ARCHIVES: “INTEGRITY”

leadership

“God can’t stand deceivers, but oh how he relishes integrity.” ~Proverbs 11:20

The world needs men who cannot be bought;
Whose word is their bond;
Who put character above wealth;
who possess opinions and a will;
who are larger than their vocations;
who do not hesitate to take chances;
who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;
who will be as honest in small things as in great things;
who will make no compromise with wrong;
whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
who will not say they do it “because everybody else does it”;
who are true to their friends through good report and evil report, in adversity as well as in prosperity;
who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;
who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;
who say “no” with emphasis, although the rest of the world can say “yes.”

from Ted Engstrom, The Making of a Christian Leader

Good words for you to contemplate today. Have a blessed day “IN CHRIST.”

The Daily Bible Reading: Psalm 131; Proverbs 13

Daily Quote: “For not only does sound reason direct us to refuse the guidance of those who do or teach anything wrong, but it is by all means vital for the lover of truth, regardless of the threat of death, to choose to do and say what is right even before saving his own life.” ~ A.W. Tozer

This Week’s Verse to Memorize:

17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.

 ~Psalm 34:17-19
