Integrity and Uprightness Will Protect You – Psalm 25:21

May integrity and uprightness protect me,
because my hope, Lord, is in You.


When you think of great leaders who have stood the test of time, what is it that defines them as a great leader? Well for one thing, a truly great leader has integrity. They can withstand all kinds of difficulties because, ultimately, they will be preserved by the fact that they cannot be faulted by immorality or injustice. While we may not like some of the characteristics or personality traits of certain leaders, if they have proven time and time again to be a person of their word (and inspired by God’s Word), they will continue to be led by the grace and protection of the Holy Spirit.

The psalmists knew that being a person of integrity would preserve our lives, safeguarding us from all sorts of wrongful accusations and misconceptions. The Holy Scriptures attest to this fact also. If you have been walking the narrow path of godly leadership and are feeling worn and tired, fear not. Do not give up. The Lord God stands firmly with the upright in heart, mind and deed. Be patient and wait for the Lord. At the perfect time, He will reward you openly for your God-honoring stewardship.

Lord, thank You for the people in our lives who have modeled true integrity for us. Keep them strong and preserved for Your glory. Help us also to be leaders that our families, friends and communities can follow. Help us to better emulate Your holy virtues. We ask, Lord, that You fill us with Your integrity and uprightness, allowing us not to grow weary in walking the narrow path of Your ways. Amen.
