A righteous man who walks in his integrity — How blessed are his sons after him. (Proverbs 20:7)
Integrity leaves a stream of blessing in its wake. The greatest gift you can give your child is a godly life. “I’m not inclined to be religious,” someone says. “I’m not very pious,” a man echoes. “I’m not oriented to the Bible,” a woman declares. All this is like saying, “I don’t use electricity because I’m not scientifically bent.” Godly living is not about religion, but life. “Righteousness” is a lifestyle conforming to God’s holy character. “Integrity”—a consistent and unimpeachable life—flows from it. All who swim in the wake are enriched.
