Integrity Moments - Jan. 25, 2012



Unethical Pressure

As the guest on a national radio program a caller asked me if he should resign from his job. He was receiving pressure to do things that were immoral and possibly illegal.

Knowing my answer could impact thousands, I shared principles instead of specifics. Rather than resign immediately, I recommended he first lovingly attempt to steer others towards a more ethical path. If this, and his respectful decline to participate in the immoral activity, however, didn’t stop the pressure, then I recommended he consider resigning.

When surrounded by the love of money, Paul taught in 1 Timothy 6:11, “But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.”

Resigning a job may be scary, but maintaining your character trumps retaining your position.
