Integrity Moments - March 14, 2017

 

Money or Reputation?

On a “60 Minutes” segment on bike racing, Istvan Varjis, a Hungarian inventor, was interviewed about a small motor that he designed that could secretly propel bicycles forward much faster. He believes that his motor has been used to cheat in the Tour de France since 1998.

During the interview, Istvan was asked, “If someone told you they were going to cheat with your motor and offered you money, would you take it?” On international television he said, “If the money is big, why not?”

Proverbs 22:1 teaches, “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.”

It’s been my experience that if someone cheats for you, they will also cheat you personally. Don’t ruin your reputation, simply for more money.
