Am I living my standards and beliefs even when no one is watching? Yes or No?
““A man’s true greatness is not in what he says he is, nor in what people say he is; [but really] in what he really is.” (Hartshorn, p. 38.) Our integrity determines what we really are.” – Personal Integrity by Joseph B. Wirthlin
“Closely associated with honesty is integrity. Integrity means thinking and doing what is right at all times, no matter what the consequences… Choose to live so that your thoughts and behavior are always in harmony with the gospel.” – For the Strength of Youth
Think over your day and try to think if you have lived with honesty and integrity. Think of at least one thing you did wrong. Pray for help to do better next time.
Today I, ____________________, will be honest with myself, others, and God at all times.
“Integrity means thinking and doing what is right at all times, no matter what the consequences. When you have integrity, you are willing to live by your standards and beliefs even when no one is watching.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today and until June 21, I, ____________________, will strive to live with integrity by living by God’s standards even when no one is looking.
“The rewards of integrity are immeasurable. One is the indescribable inner peace and serenity that come from knowing we are doing what is right; another is an absence of the guilt and anxiety that accompany sin.
“Another reward of integrity is the confidence it can give us in approaching God. When virtue garnishes our thoughts unceasingly, our confidence is strong in the presence of God. (See D&C 121:45.) When we are doing what is right, we will not feel timid and hesitant about seeking divine direction. We will know the Lord will answer our prayers and help us in our need.
“The consummate reward of integrity is the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. (See D&C 121:46.) The Holy Ghost does not attend us when we do evil. But when we do what is right, he can dwell with us and guide us in all we do.” – Personal Integrity by Joseph B. Wirthlin
