Greetings Everyone,

Someone noted that if you look at a picture of the Statue of Liberty taken from a helicopter looking at the top of the statue’s hea, it shows the amazing detail of the scupture. The sculptor did a thorough job with the top of the lady’s hair.

And yet he must have been pretty sure that the only eyes that would ever see this detail would be the uncritical eyes of sea gulls. He could not have imagined that any man would ever fly over this head. He was artist enough, however, to finish off this part of the statue with as much care as he had devoted to her face and her arms, and the torch, and everything that people can see as they sail up the bay. That’s called INTEGRITY.

You see, someone else may try to ruin your reputation, but only you can ruin your integrity. What we do, and how we do it has to do with INTEGRITY!

Job won the admiration of God because he held fast to his INTEGRITY. Job was blameless, upright, feared God, and shunned evil, even when he had lost everything.

We as believers are called to hold to personal INTEGRITY. In our society of no real morals of right and wrong, people are asking Christians: Are you real? Can I trust what you say? Can I trust what you appear to be?” We bear the responsibility of demonstrating INTEGRITY before man and God.

“Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.” Job 27:5

Your Friend,

Pastor Allen
