“He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.” (Proverbs 2:7, NLT)
Have you ever taken a short-cut only to discover — late — that it cost you more time, more money, and more energy than the “long way ’round” would have?
Have you thought that doing the right thing because it is the right thing requires too much “exposure” to less scrupulous people, who might take advantage?
In these circumstances, God’s word tells us that the path of honesty is the correct path — always; and that God is a shield to all persons of integrity.
Today, make honesty and integrity in all things your non-negotiable objective. – Luther
