3 What we have seen and heard, we also announce it to you so that you can have fellowship with us. Our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We are writing these things so that our joy can be complete. 5 This is the message that we have heard from him and announce to you: “God is light and there is no darkness in him at all.” 6 If we claim, “We have fellowship with him,” and live in the darkness, we are lying and do not act truthfully. 7 But if we live in the light in the same way as he is in the light, we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from every sin. 8 If we claim, “We don’t have any sin,” we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from everything we’ve done wrong. 10 If we claim, “We have never sinned,” we make him a liar and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:3-10, CEB)
Integrity. Doing the right thing even when no one is looking.
Being a person who is always the same. It is a quality not found a lot now. People will say to you what you want to hear and then turn around and say the exact opposite of what they told you to someone else, because that is what they want to hear. In some circles this is called keeping the peace, but according to John it is lying and not being truthful, walking in darkness.
As children of God we are called to have integrity. It is hard, but God will help us.
Be a person of integrity.
Love People, Love God.
