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

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…” Suppose your employer offered a promotion or pay increase that would mean you had to compromise your values. To refuse could cost you your job. That’s when your integrity will be tested.

He is a shield to those who walk with integrity… People with integrity walk safely… The godly walk with integrity. (Proverbs 2:7; 10:9; 20:7)
