Driven: What's Inside Matters Most
Integrity is choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do.
Be truthful with your whole life.
We kick off this series in Luke 6:43-45, where Jesus used the example of a tree to teach His followers a lesson about integrity. Jesus said, “A good tree doesn’t bear bad fruit. And a bad tree doesn’t bear good fruit.” Jesus was saying that what’s on the inside matters most and influences who you are on the outside. The best way to live a life of integrity is to stay connected to Jesus.
Be truthful with your whole life. Integrity means doing what’s right, even when no one is looking. When we’re truthful with our whole life, we’re not just honest with our words. We also make sure our actions—in front of people or by ourselves—match the life God wants us to live.
