45/366: Integrity Takes Effort



"You shall not steal." ~ God  Exodus 20:15


While we may not steal cars, jewelry, or flat screen TVs, is it possible we can steal from others and not even realize it?

In my past, there were a few times when I stole time from my employer. I was paid a wage for something I willingly chose not to do.  Is that stealing?  It felt that way to me.

If it is stealing, then what separates a thief from an honest man?  Is it the price tag of the "lifted item"?  Or could it be something deeper - like the condition of the heart? Integrity?

As the saying goes, "Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching."  Be wise with your heart.
