Today’s 333 Devotional: “Integrity Speaks and Stands for Truth”
Jesus said the mouth speaks what the heart is full of (Luke 6:45). Therefore, a heart that is integrous is going to speak the truth.
Jesus said, “All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” (Matthew 5:37)
Long explanations are not necessary, a simple yes or no will do. Our words need to be so reliable that nothing more than a simple statement or word is needed.
Solomon said, “Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you.” (Proverbs 4:24)
A person with an integrous heart won’t be found speaking from both sides of their mouth. Hypocrisy and lies would not be considered acceptable.
Standing for the truth is taking our speaking truth to the next level by putting it into action.
“For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.” (2 Corinthians 13:8)
In our society today there’s a prevalent attitude that whatever someone believes in, that’s the truth, whether it’s true or not. It’s called subjective truth. It means that whatever is true for one person must be true for others, whether it is or not.
What this is doing is kicking objective truth to the curb or throwing it out the window.
Today subjective truth is going by the name of tolerance, which is anything but tolerant.
What is needed are Christians who are willing to stand for the truth and against the wrongs of society. We’re to be people of an integrous heart that not only speak the truth, but also stand upon the truth of God’s word.
Integrity is a vital element to a Christian’s heart and one that needs to be nourished and maintained, because it’s out the abundance of our heart we speak, and it’s our hearts that determine who and what we are, therefore we need to guard our hearts, and the best defense is to fill it with God’s word.
