Finding My Set Place: “Phil 3:17-19” – August 5, 2007

It seemed like every article I read or news report I watched had me questioning how many people today truly knows what it means to live a life of integrity and the importance of it in their daily lives.

It started with an episode of “Basketball Wives LA” as I watched one of the women recall how she felt her cast mate was putting on a front and couldn’t be trusted. However, when they played her actual response to the woman in a clip, she laughed it off and played nice like there was no issue.

Apparently, him claiming to be separated was enough for her to jump in bed with him, yet at the end of the article she says she values marriage and would never cheat on her husband. The ignorance of the article is beyond your wildest imagination and I won’t waste time on it. I want to focus on just one of the missing ingredients in both of these stories… Integrity.
