Do the Right Thing

Give what you have to anyone who asks you for it; and when things are taken away from you, don’t worry about getting them back.

Treat others as you want them to treat you. “Do you think you deserve credit for merely loving those who love you? Even the godless do that!

Luke 6:30-32


I believe that integrity is impossible to measure — either you have it or you don’t. It’s like Tom Peters once said: “There is no such thing as a minor lapse of integrity.”

The Bible also informs us that we should do everything in kindness and truth. To the point where our character is most evidenced in how we treat the people who have the least to offer us.

Your philanthropic contributions mean nothing when they’re presented with ulterior motives and are absent of sincerity.

Feeding the homeless, clothing the poor, and marching for equality become tools of deception when they’re not motivated by selflessness.

I don’t think integrity is a catch-all quality that we simply ascribe to someone because they’re “nice” or polite.

I believe that you should be as proud of anonymously doing the right thing as you would if Jesus were standing next to you when you did it.
