Read 2 Kings chapter 12
2 Kings 12:15–They did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty.
Wow, what a concept! People who deal with money acting honestly. That is such a foreign concept in our day and time and quite frankly, that was a foreign concept for them as well. We have to understand that these people still had all the temptations of greed and power struggles that we have today. They question that we have to ask ourselves is, could we be described like this? Could our relationship with our spouse be described like this? What about with our children or our parents? How about our interactions at work with our boss or co workers? Are we someone who works with complete integrity and everyone knows it?
Father, I pray that You will give me Your integrity to act and work exactly the way that You would have me act and work. I will trust You for the results and the perception and reputation that I have with others, but I pray that I will be worthy of You in all that I do and say.
