Often, if there is no risk of loss or painful consequences, one will never know if one has integrity. (Sam Storms, teacher and author)

Storms continues, “One will never know if what motivates you is moral conviction or moral convenience until you are forced to suffer loss for standing your ground or keeping your word.” These words are especially challenging: “Moral conviction or moral convenience.” It may be easier sometimes to give in rather than stand up; that’s where our integrity is tested.

All [God’s] commandments are trustworthy. They are forever true, to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity . . . Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord (Psalm 111:7-8; 119:1).
