Joel Osteen (April-15-2019) Daily Devotion: Live In Integrity.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches… Proverbs 22:1, KJV
TODAY'S WORD: What do people think when they hear your name? Do they think, “Oh, that person is always so trustworthy and faithful; they always do the right thing”? Or do they think, “Watch out for that person. You never know what they’re going to do”? You might say, “Oh, I’m a pretty good person. I do the right thing most of the time.” But understand that it’s the little foxes that spoil the vine. 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 her word. He says what he means and means what he says. She 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. If you’ll be faithful and choose integrity in the little things, it will be a great treasure in your life. God will pour out His blessing on you as you honor Him all the days of your life.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Father God, today I commit to live a life of integrity. I choose a life of excellence and ask for Your hand of favor. Show me any area that is not pleasing to You so that I can continue to grow and increase in You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
