STOP AND THINK – Integrity…does not mean sinless, but it does describe a person who by God’s grace sins less. (Sam Storms, American theologian)

Although God is perfect and wants His people to be perfect, it is clear from the Bible and the lives of biblical characters that perfection is the goal but not the present experience of true believers. Progress in holiness is the desired evidence of a true believer. When he falls, he gets up again and asks God for strength to improve in godliness.

For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. (Proverbs 24:16)
