Scripture says, “The integrity of the upright guides them. . .” The older I get the more this maxim helps me. Most of the decisions we struggle with may be resolved by turning to the simple but profound scriptural virtues. If a man does what is most right, he achieves what is the absolute best.
Over and over again, pragmatic issues return to the concept of right, and it helps me discover the reality of what is best. For example, I have never let the amount of money influence my decision process. Money should be managed on the basis of principle, not amount.
It is amazing how principles are compromised by degree. The more the money, the harder it is for some.
I must constantly keep before me this primary management truth: “The integrity of the upright guides them. . . .”
