He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. - Proverbs 2:7 NLT

We aren’t born with a heart of integrity, and if we want it, we have to fight for it.A Life Of Integrity

In a world filled with concern for only ones self, and the drive for success, integrity is always being challenged. It isn’t as simple as just making the good choice, we have have to stand against an entire world that apposes us.

To fight also means to surround ourselves with people who are always watching and holding us accountable. – A Life Of Integrity

We can’t make it through this world as a Christ follower on our own, let alone maintain integrity. We all need partners to do life with and keep us accountable to living a life of integrity.

We are much more likely to continue to compromise when no one cares that we are doing it or will not find out. Accountability is hard, but is a key ingredient to taking responsibility for our actions and words. – A Life Of Integrity

Without accountability to keep us on course we will continue to fail, or worse, veer way off course. I’m thankful to have a group of men in my life to call me out, challenge me, and keep me on course.
