Leading with Integrity

One of the greatest challenge for leaders today is integrity. Many will say things like  walk the talk and lead by example.  This is sad because you can not just lead by cliche.  You really have to lead by the way you live and not by some words that does not mean a thing.

The word integrity can be misunderstood. It is not a positive attribute as many think it is however integrity comes from the same Latin root as integer. We get the word integers from math, they are whole numbers. Integrity simple means whole, or complete.

As leaders we should value integrity, reverence and sanctification. Apostle Paul have written thirteen epistle of the New Testament , no epistle give us a better look at man's heart than the one found in  found in 2 Corinthians. Integrity is the concept of wholeness. Synonyms are honesty, virtue, honor, morality, uprightness, soundness, and sincerity. Proverbs 10:9 tell us,"he who walks with integrity walks securely, but he who perverts hisways will become known(NKJV). This means conforming to God's law as a course of life.  Choosing crooked paths its willfully to disdain the guidance God so graciously provided.
