The Importance of Character and Integrity 

“The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.” Proverbs 20:7

This world says, “If we could just arrange conditions so that we never had any sorrow, pain, or hurts, then we could change men. If we can change conditions, then we can change character.”

But the Bible teaches just the opposite. The world puts the emphasis on condition. God puts the emphasis on character.

Someone has well said you can’t purify the water by painting the pump. And yet that’s what we try to do. We think that if we can change the exterior or make conditions such that we never have any hurts, then we’re going to be okay. But Jesus put the emphasis upon character — on what you are, not what you have.

Is there someone in your life that you admire? Someone who is a person of integrity? Praise God for His work in that person’s life and give him or her a word of encouragement today.
