What really is Integrity?



Integrity is a word that gets thrown around a lot these days, but what does it really mean? According to the Bible, integrity is about having a moral code that aligns with God's principles and being consistent in living out that code, even when no one is watching. In secular terms, integrity is about being true to yourself and your values, and not letting outside influences corrupt those values.


One of my favorite Bible verses on integrity is Proverbs 11:3, which says, "The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity." In other words, if you stay true to your values and principles, you'll be guided in the right direction, but if you're a sneaky little weasel who can't be trusted, you'll eventually be found out and destroyed. So, it's basically like playing a game of "Integrity Jenga" - if you keep stacking those blocks of truth and honesty on top of each other, you'll build a strong tower of integrity. But if you start pulling out blocks and replacing them with lies and deceit, eventually the whole tower will come crashing down.


On the secular side, the famous philosopher Aristotle believed that integrity is about being virtuous, and that means having the courage to stand up for what is right, even when it's hard. In other words, integrity is like a superhero power that helps you do the right thing, even when you're up against a whole bunch of bad guys.


But let's be real, sometimes it's hard to take integrity seriously, especially when you hear people using the word so flippantly. Like, "I have integrity, I always use a coaster." Or "I have integrity, I always put the toilet seat down." While those may be important habits, I 'm not sure they really qualify as true measures of integrity.


In conclusion, integrity is a crucial aspect of our lives, whether we are guided by religious principles or not. It is about staying true to our values and principles, and having the courage to do the right thing, even when it's hard. And remember, if you're feeling a little shaky in the integrity department, just think of it as playing a game of Integrity Jenga and don't be a sneaky weasel or put too much weight on one block.
