The Search for Integrity

Integrity. Sometimes it seems we have lost sight of what that word means.

What brings this subject to mind? An article in today's online Indianapolis Star about the Marion County Coroner's office. This particular article details a search made by prosecutors in that office today based on reports of inappropriate conduct, however they define that today.

You could open any newspaper, online or the old fashioned way and find article after article about people who have forgotten what integrity is.

Integrity is defined by Webster's as:
1 : firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values : INCORRUPTIBILITY
2 : an unimpaired condition : SOUNDNESS
3 : the quality or state of being complete or undivided : COMPLETENESS

I love the idea of incorruptibility, soundness and completeness. Are we willing to take the steps necessary to live incorruptible lives? Lives planted by streams of living water? Lives that know there is a right and wrong and are willing to make the hard choices?

Let's start a revolution of integrity, living sound lives, one decision at a time.
