Quick Thought on Integrity – Day 3

Just received an ergonomic keyboard and I'm still figuring out exactly how to use it. All the modifier keys are in different places and the keys are not offset the same way. So I don't think I'll be able to do a long post tonight.

Besides yesterday's question, I've been mulling over the word "integrity" and how it is supposed to indicate an internal alignment between beliefs and actions. For most business or self-help books that seems to be as far as it goes. However, it doesn't take much to uncover historical instances of that kind of alignment that is truly horrifying. (I wish I had more time to list a few). Suffice to say that it was the fundamental beliefs that were wrong. so integrity needs to include alignment with the reality outside us. And the reality outside is only properly understood in relation to its Creator. Thus to have true integrity means that a person's actions arise from beliefs that are aligned with those truths revealed by the Creator within His creation and His revelation.
