We started our last teaching with a basic word study on the subject of integrity. Integrity describes a condition of united wholeness - Psalm 119:10 - "With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!" Thats the perfect picture of integrity - "With my whole heart I seek you..." This is not a sinlessheart. But it's a united heart. The whole life is moving in only one direction. And where there is tolerance toward small inward compromise wandering is inevitable.
We unpacked the first of three points. The key to everything is thinking of our lives like we think of whole numbers with no left over fractions. Integrity of heart means not approaching God in a piecemeal fashion. We unite our desires and plans and personalities as a complete package offered to our Lord. Wise and godly people think much about this pulling together or falling apart of character when they pray and meditate on Gods Word.
In this study we will consider points two and three.
