Integrity: the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
Titus 2:6-8 “Similarly, encourage the young men<sup class="crossreference" value="(A)”> to be self-controlled.<sup class="crossreference" value="(B)”> 7 In everything set them an example<sup class="crossreference" value="(C)”> by doing what is good.<sup class="crossreference" value="(D)”> In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8 and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.”
Integrity is a trait we try to focus on with the boys that God has placed here. A lot of the boys that come here want to lie to get out of trouble, but then that just gets them into more trouble. We want them to learn about strong moral principles so that they can be respected out in the real world.
God is a BIG God and HE has blessed this place to stay in operation for all these years. We are so thankful for all of you supporters out there that have helped all these years.
We just want you to know that your money is paying it forward, by us helping these boys. If we can get these boys to become men of integrity, then they in turn will turn around and raise men or women of integrity.
So, what about you, are you being that man or woman of integrity that God would have you be? You may be the only example some boy or girl is learning from. Just a heart check! We are a walking example every day in our daily schedule. We can either be a positive example or we can be a negative example. Which kind of an example do you want to be? I want to be a positive example, and I have to work at that everyday with the help of my Lord and Savior.
I pray that you and I can show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, while we walk our walk.
Walk your talk for HIM,
