A Word From Chaplain Perez
September 2023

The classic scene of a child being alone with a cookie jar reflects the human struggle to maintain integrity. A moral dilemma ensues within our hearts and minds. It is the test or the turmoil that goes on inside of us while debating whether or not to take the cookie, knowing full well we are not suppose to.

In Proverbs 11, it states, “The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them. ” (vs. 3). The standard of our integrity is based on God’s law, statutes, and principles. Our pursuit to honor God empowers us to do what is right and do what is pleasing in His sight. The proverb clearly indicates that it will guide us to do the right thing.Integrity is “doing the right thing when no one is watching.” What happens if we decide to do the wrong thing when no one is looking? The same proverb states that the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. The idea is that the we are provided guidance and instruction on

how to walk the moral path. When deciding not to follow the word of God, the path becomes crooked (out of alignment). Using the principle of a wheel alignment for a car, when the car is out of alignment, it impacts the tread on the wheels, the suspension and steering components. Our lack of integrity triggers a domino affect which will influence the other areas of our lives.

Let’s encourage one another to stay aligned with God’s ways. Continue growing in integrity by following God’s word and walking by the Holy Spirit. While experiencing the ebbs and flows of our spiritual journey, pursue integrity as a child of God, saved by grace.
