INTEGRITY

Most definitions of integrity state these aspects:

(1) Being honest and having strong commitment to good spiritual or moral principles

(2) Having soundness, stability, or wholeness

Here are some important things the Scriptures say about integrity:

Having integrity is a great way to avoid the pitfalls that guilt traps people into. The more we live with integrity, the more we demonstrate our trust in God.

A personโ€™s decision to live with integrity benefits themself and everyone they influence. That makes personal integrity a natural way to help others.

That kind of โ€˜soundnessโ€™ sounds great to us!
