Today’s 333 Devotional: “An Integrity Filled Heart”
When talking about the qualities that are necessary for a Christian heart, integrity is one quality that cannot be ignored. The reason is because that’s the type of heart God desires and uses.
Of King David it says, “And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.” (Psalm 78:72)
It was with such an integrous heart that God commended David. In Acts 13:22 the Lord’s testimony of David says, “I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.”
If David had a heart after God’s heart, and if David’s heart was integrous, therefore integrity is an integral part of God’s own heart.
This is something that Moses said about God’s character.
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19)
And so, a Christian’s heart needs to be an integrous heart because an integrous heart, a heart filled with integrity is part of God’s own heart.
Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that integrity is needed now more than ever. First, we live in a society where what was once called good, is now being called evil, and what was once called evil is now being called good.
But also, our society is drowning in lies. We are living in a world living more by the lie than by the truth, and the sad part is that most people don’t even think it’s that big a deal.
But it is a big deal. The Bible calls it sin. It is such a big deal in how it hurts our relationship with God and others that He makes it one of His Ten Commandments. This one is the ninth to be exact.
“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” (Exodus 20:16)
