Integrity Is Something You Are
The first step to having integrity is thinking about it.
The mind is a powerful thing. The Bible says that you are what you think about (Proverbs 23:7). Read that again. Not only do you act upon what you think about, but you also become what you think about.
Take the matter of integrity, which is the centerpiece of your character. Integrity is not something you do; it’s something you are–a person of integrity. You don’t have integrity because you do things that are truthful and honorable and right. You do the right things because you have integrity.
How do you become a person of integrity? You must first think about the things that define integrity. When you occupyt your mind with the right things, you will do the right things. You can count on that. You can also be sure that the opposite is true.
Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Philippians 4:8
