True integrity implies you do what is right when no one is looking or when everyone [else] is compromising. (C. S. Lewis, British writer)
The Bible says, “[God’s] light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19). Hasn’t that been the experience of all of us at one time or another? Didn’t we hide our behavior from public view when we knew it was wrong? No matter what others may be doing, we must be honest in public and private; that’s integrity!
People with integrity walk safely, but those who follow crooked paths will be exposed . . . [God] is a shield to those who walk with integrity. (Proverbs 10:9; 2:7)
