STOP AND THINK – Integrity is choosing your thoughts and actions based on values rather than personal gain. (Author unknown)
In modern America we emphasize individuality and personal freedom. As important as those values are, they sometimes make us think and act without regard to others and their hopes and dreams. We must learn to make our choices, not on the basis exclusively of what will benefit us, but on the essential values of family and community.
In humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others (Philippians 2:3-4).
