The Cost of Integrity
by Rick Boxx
March 25, 2010
A CEO, and his team, reportedly flew to Russia in a corporate jet to discuss doing business in that country. While there they discovered their jet wasn't safe to return unless they replaced a part.
They were told the part would require a bribe. Amazingly, the CEO refused and stayed in Russia longer than planned, eventually taking a commercial flight home. The pilots stayed until another source for the part was found.
The Apostle Paul suffered in prison for two years because of his refusal to bribe Felix. Acts 24:26 says, "At the same time too, he (Felix) was hoping that Paul would offer him a bribe, so he sent for him frequently and talked with him."
How much are you willing to endure to do the right thing?
