The word “True” can be used in several different ways:
It can be used when speaking to someone and they state a fact. You might say, “That’s true.”
It can be used when fixing a bicycle rim to roll evenly instead of wobbly. It is called “having your wheel trued.”
It can be used when describing how a person feels about himself. You might say, “You have to be true to yourself.”
I spoke Sunday on the problem with hazardous waste, especially as it relates to individuals. Many people, not just Christ-followers, find themselves mired in a pit of their own making because they didn’t realize the slow compromise that was taking place. Little by little, inch by inch, decision by decision, it is not unusual to find a person wondering, “How in the world did I get here?’
INTEGRITY IS OFTEN A LOST CHARACTER TRAIT.
I am guessing over a month ago I read a fascinating story in the news. My oldest
traitor daughter, who is a Braves fan (can I gag now?), was watching the Braves/Giants game this past weekend. The announcers were talking about a player on the Giants. With all the bad headlines baseball is getting with the PED issue and now the brawls that seem to be almost a daily happening, one baseball player stands out. His remarkable story is here. I’m telling you folks, it doesn’t get much better than that! In this day and age of so many “me-first” athletes (not all but many), this story stands out head and shoulders above others.
INTEGRITY IS NOT DEAD!!!
It is also nice to know that Jeremy and his wife are motivated by something special. You can find out here what it is.
To be faced day in and day out with the temptations professional ballplayers are faced with is a monumental thing. I, for one, pray Jeremy and his wife stay strong in their faith and in their integrity.
What are your thoughts? Do you know ordinary people who display integrity? Do you know of other stories I can read?
