Faithful Guide

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- February 9, 2013

“The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity” (Proverbs 11:3).

Integrity is an instrument of almighty God. He uses it to guide His children in the direction He desires for them. Have you ever wondered what God would have you do? Integrity is His directive to do the next right thing, trusting Him with the results. It is out of honesty we begin to comprehend Christ’s desires. He delights in our uprightness.

For example, are you totally honest on your tax return? Is your tax preparer a person of unquestionable integrity? We can trust professionals to represent us well, but we are ultimately responsible for an honest outcome. Furthermore, is there anything you are doing, if printed as a newspaper headline, that would embarrass you and your family? Indeed, integrity brings joy to heaven and security on earth. It is your guide for godly living.

Moreover, the iniquity of the unfaithful destroys. The blessing of God is removed as it cannot be bought with bad behavior. Relationships are scarred and some even severed over dishonest dealings. Overnight, poor judgment can soil and potentially destroy a hard-earned reputation. Pride acts like integrity is only for others. It deceives itself and becomes a disgrace for its dishonest and duplicitous ways. Iniquity is an unfaithful guide.

“I put in charge of Jerusalem my brother Hanani, along with Hananiah the commander of the citadel, because he was a man of integrity and feared God more than most people do” (Nehemiah 7:2).

So we ask ourselves, “How can I be a man or woman of integrity over the balance of my life?” There is a simplicity about those who base their behavior on the principles of God’s Word; nothing fancy, only faithful living in their daily routine. The grace of God governs their soul, the truth of God renews their mind, and accountability is an anchor for their actions. Honestly ask yourself, “Is integrity my faithful guide?”

The Bible says, “May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you” (Psalm 25:21).

Prayer: How can I better integrate integrity as a guide for my business dealings and behavior at home?

    I’m the co-founder of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and am aiming to expand my wholesale side of business. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the best way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anybody could recommend a trustworthy web site where I can buy Vape Shop B2B Marketing List I am presently taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
