STOP AND THINK – The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and how he treats people who can’t fight back. (Abigail van Buren, 20th century American advice columnist)
How you treat people who can benefit you or those who have no ability to harm you is not a good test of your integrity. It’s when you act without regard to “what’s in it for you” or “he can’t hurt me no matter what I do” that reveals the strength and consistency of your character.
The Lord shall judge the people: judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me. (Psalm 7:8)
