From the Psalms

Psalm 26:1-12

Well, it's Thanksgiving week here in the United States and Dr. Kroll is doing a week long radio series called Thanksgiving from the Psalms. So each day here on P4 we'll be looking at and considering the same Psalm Dr. Kroll is teaching on for that day. So if you can, join us for the daily programs.

David talks about walking in integrity in Psalm 26 and then he gives us some examples of that. Things like not sitting with men of falsehood (vs. 4), proclaiming the Lord to others (vs. 7), and loving God's house (vs. 8).

So what does walking in integrity mean to you? What does it look like in your life? Give us some examples (like David did). Tami W.

For me, I want to be nice to others. I don't want to speak meanly about others. I want my words to be pleasing to the one I live for.........Christ.

The word integrity is defined from http://www.thefreedictionary.com/integrity:

1. Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code.
2. The state of being unimpaired; soundness.
3. The quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness.
The meaning of "walking" or "living" in integrity to me is my ability with the aide, assistance, and guidance of the Holy Spirit to literally "live out" or to "walk unimpaired". In essence,in the purest since,integrity is striving to live a life of integrity through incorporating the acts of ethical character in my life at all times; my life should not reflect this type of character only when others are capable of visually seeing my deeds;ethical character should be constantly exhibited at all times in my life enabling me to illuminate the truest definition of integrity as the state of being unimpaired; soundness...the quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness." In essence, to be "moral" defined as:"Conforming to standards of what is right or just in behavior; virtuous."My desire is to live and walk with integrity daily through the application of God's WORD... providing an example of "right or just behavior" towards my fellowman by following His commands..."to love my neighbor as I first love myself."

walkin in integrity for me is to try at all times to do and say the things that are right in the eyes of god,also be a beacon so that my light can shine for others to see.and also as psalms (chap. 1 says) that also is walking in integrity.

Integrity to me means acting in a way that matches up w/ your character. For instance, if u call yourself a Christian you should act like one. I strive to be a pure instrument of God to get the right message out.

Hebrew wording: test my kidneys and my heart - hmmm...to ask for testing makes living in truthfulness even more challenging. I think of the filtering and discernment that is continually needed to maintain integrity (kidneys). Lately I have been focusing on my tongue. It is too easy to 'bad-mouth' other people. Even though statements seem 'true,' they are not needed and don't give the Christian view of 'turning the cheek' and 'giving my coat' too. I am thankful that God does listen to us when we ask for mercy- vs. 11, He is gracious = Halleluiah!

To me, I must rely on Christ to be able to live a life of integrity, and there are so many ways to fail at that walk....if I don't depend on Him. Also, to me, integrity means doing the right thing, even when no one else will see or know.
