If we really want the world to change there can be no separation between what we believe to be right and the work that we set our hands to. Isn’t that the definition of integrity (to be integrated)?
Separation happens when we say, “I believe this, but I have to do this other thing which doesn’t really line up.” The reasons we do the “other thing” are wide and varied. The pressures (real or otherwise) that we feel that press us into finding defensible reasons to do the “other thing” are also many and uniquely suited to each of our weaknesses.
Let us be better than that. Let us be confident in trusting that when we do the right thing we will also get the strength, provision, and protection needed. Let us work to be integrated.
