STOP AND THINK – When you have to start compromising yourself or your morals for the people around you, it is probably time to change the people around you. (Marc Daniels, American television director)

When we’re faced with situations and circumstances that would seem to demand moral compromise, we must decide which is more important: our integrity and values or our relationship with people of differing standards. Relationships are important, of course, but standing up for what is right is essential if we are to maintain our integrity and reputation.

Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value the one who speaks what is right. (Proverbs 16:13)
