Do Things Well, Be a Person of Integrity, Do the Right Thing

Luke 19:17 – Do Things Well

Take pride in what God has given you.  You may be driving an old car, but that’s no excuse for not keeping it clean and neat.  Similarly, you may have an old small home, but make sure it looks like a person of excellence lives there.

God’s people are people of excellence.  They stand out from the crowd because they choose to do things well.  You may be in a situation today where everybody around you is compromising their integrity or taking the easy way out.  Don’t let that rub off on you.  Be the one to have an excellent spirit.  Do your work well, take care of the resources that God has given you, and live in such a manner that when people see you, they will be attracted to your God.

Luke 16:10 – Be a Person of Integrity

God wants us to be people of integrity, people of honor , people who are trustworthy.  A person of integrity is open and honest and true to his word.  He doesn’t have any hidden agendas or ulterior motives.  He doesn’t need a legal contract to force him to fulfill his commitments.  People of integrity are the same in private as they are in public.  They do what’s right whether anybody is watching or not.

God will only trust us with more after we have been faithful with a little.  Remember, our lives are an open book before God.  He looks at our hearts and motives.  There’s no limit to what God will do in your life when he knows He can trust you.


Song of Solomon 2:5 – Do the Right Thing

If you don’t have integrity, you will never reach your highest potential.  Integrity is the foundation on which a truly successful life is built.  Every time you compromise, every time you are less than honest, you are causing a slight crack in the foundation.  If you continue compromising, that foundation will never be able to hold what God wants to build.  You’ll never see the fullness of God’s favor if you don’t take the high road and make the more excellent choices.  On the other hand, God’s blessings will overtake us if we settle for nothing less than living with integrity.
