Integrity is Expensive

Thought for Today: “Integrity is Expensive”

Jesus talks about what really matters when it comes to our eternity.

He said, “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26)

Joseph’s integrity cost him dearly. It cost him his freedom, but in the end, God blessed him and saved his family through him as a result.

There is something that I tell everyone I counsel when things don’t go their way and they are tempted to take the easy way out. I tell them that when we honor God, God will honor us.

Having an integrous heart will lead to problems, relational conflicts, loss of business, and possibly loss of a job. But in the end, it will lead to real benefits.

Benefits of Integrity

  1. Safety and Security (Proverbs 10:9)
  2. Protection (Psalm 25:21)
  3. Guidance (Proverbs 11:3)
  4. Family (Proverbs 20:7)

And so, while our integrity will cost us, in the end it will bring real and lasting benefits that money can’t buy.
