Honesty & Integrity

Written by Randle Lee

For the past few months, I have been interviewing people for a couple of open positions at my organization.  It is amazing the things people put into their resumes hoping to get attention or trying to make themselves look better for employment.  Fortunately, it is very easy to verify most of these things.  The easiest item to see through is someone who claims to have won awards or achieved success in their field which would relate to our organization.  I wonder why someone would think they can cover up bad career decisions by not being truthful in their statements.  

Then it hit me!  Isn’t that what we ask of God every day?  Knowing his grace, do we not test the limits of that grace by not being truly honest with ourselves and own up to our weaknesses and then do all we can to live a life of honesty and integrity?  Many of the professionals I look up to in the nonprofit world are those who have always been honest and you know they can be counted on to deliver in times of confusion.  What this has meant in their careers has been not always being the most popular and sometimes having to live through trying times, living up to the principles they know are right. >I now try and instill the importance in making the right decisions to my new employees and those who have yet to start a career.  

I know God is trying to do the same with me.  The beauty of God is that I DON’T have to live in the past; he wipes away our decisions everyday.  We are allowed to start over on our resume.  Giving us the chance to create a brand new resume, he can review and say, “Well done” and share those magic words, “You are hired to come to work in heaven.”

Prayer - “May integrity and honesty be their virtue and their protection", Amen. (Psalm 25:21).
