Balancing Your Integrity
By:Rick Boxx
April 27, 2016

There are leaders who heavily lean towards thinking everything is either right or wrong. They follow the rules closely and struggle when someone breaks the rules.

Other leaders, however, seem to believe that rules and laws are simply suggestions. They're more inclined to think about the spirit of the law, but often overlook the importance of the laws. Both approaches taken to their extremes can be dangerous.

Jesus taught in Matthew 23:23, "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former."

In your effort to lead with integrity practice justice, mercy, and faithfulness without neglecting God's law.
