Integrity 2

Your integrity must be the driving force in the exercise of your skill. (Jesse Deloe, author)

To watch a skilled artisan exercise his or her craft is a delight and pleasure. We marvel at the workmanship of a creative woodworker or sculptor, musician, or artist. But there are some who use their proficiency for nefarious purposes: a safe cracker, for example. As Deloe says, integrity must be the driving force behind any creation or activity.

I know, my God, that you examine our hearts and rejoice when you find integrity there. (1 Chronicles 29:17)
