How To Serve With Integrity of Heart In Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

God wants us to serve him with the integrity of heart.

In our homes and in our individual lives, God requires that we serve Him with an upright heart. Serve God in the faithfulness of your heart. Seeking to know God and His ways will engender walking in the integrity of your heart, where you are not deceived in your own heart.

Some people try to mock God. They serve God unfaithfully and expect the reward of being faithful.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. – Gal 6:7

What you reap is a function of what you sow; that is God’s word. You can’t serve God without integrity and expect the reward of those that serve God with integrity.

David served God with the integrity of his heart. He was sincere. He was true to himself and to God. He loved God genuinely, he served him with the whole of his heart. He had no other God. Were David’s heart to be opened, you will see him serving God with the truth. He had no skeleton in his cupboard.

So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands. – Psa 78:72

God promised that if we walk in the integrity of heart and in uprightness, keeping all His statutes, He will establish us. In the works of our hands, in our homes, and on the job, He wants to show Himself faithful.

And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments: Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel. – 1Ki 9:4 – 5

Let us be true to ourselves. Let us not think we can do things on our own. Let our heartbeat be to do His will. Some of us don’t want to do things God’s way because we think His ways are too difficult.

In our hearts, let us check for any form of deception that may want to deceive our hearts. As a husband or as a wife, seek to serve God with the integrity of your heart. God is searching for those whose hearts are upright towards him.

God bless your marriage.

How To Live With Integrity

How To Live With Integrity

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Do you know how to live with integrity? Taiwo wasn’t really interested in helping Ola with her mathematics assignment. She had consented to it while they were amongst friends and didn’t want to look uncool. The others had clapped for her, Taiwo never felt this good.

Now, Ola was coming over to Taiwo’s house with the assignment, any minute from now. Oh boy! Taiwo suddenly wished she had not agreed to it in the first place. Her favorite show would be coming on the television soon and she didn’t want to miss it.

‘Why the worry?’ Taiwo’s mom asked her. ‘You are wearing out the rug.’

‘I promised to help Ola with her assignment but can’t anymore. I want to watch my favorite show on television.’ Taiwo answered.

‘Now what did Jesus say about that?’ she asked.

‘We should keep our promises?’ Taiwo said.

‘Exactly!’ said her mom.

Jesus said we should not be too hasty to make a promise. Making a quick decision without first thinking it through could be a problem for us like Taiwo is in right now.

But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.James 5:12, KJV

Keeping promises is very important as they help to build our integrity and credibility.

‘So what are you going to do?’ Taiwo’s mom asked her again.

‘I guess I can watch the show next week. Ola won’t be happy if I don’t help her as promised. I have to keep my promise.’ Taiwo said.

I am so proud of you.’ said her mother, clapping for Taiwo.

The doorbell rang, Ola was at the door.

God bless you immeasurably. Amen

Prayer:
Lord Jesus, help me to keep my promises so I can be a person of integrity and credibility. Also, make me wise enough to not make hasty decisions or promises in your mighty name I pray. Amen.

Action plan:
Are there promises you have made to others and you didn’t keep? Pray about them and ask Jesus to help you keep them. Also, ask for forgiveness from these people.

Declaration:
My yes is yes. I will not be double-minded.
