We’re living through an integrity meltdown. Honesty and integrity seem to be so seldom experienced; we’re not sure how to take it when someone is actually being truthful. What would happen if Christians were actually people of their word as well as being people of the Word?
There’s more than one way to steal and there’s more than one way to rob God of His honor and glory. Cheating on a test or stealing a candy bar may not seem as bad as stealing a car, but the affect is still the same. There’s a lot at stake here. Seriously.
When a basic and complete respect for life is missing, society is in chaos. From abortion to euthanasia our culture is at a loss because it doesn’t respect life. We need to not only have respect for life ourselves, but learn to teach this kind of respect where our society will actually get it.
The primary expression of respect is not only absent in our society, it’s missing in our homes. Children don’t honor their parents and many parents aren’t worthy of honor. It’s time to find out what needs to happen.
