For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.Hebrews 12.3
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5.16-18
If you are serious about becoming a person of integrity, the first step is to admit that you haven’t had integrity. Just admit that you don’t always keep your promises. You gossip, and you like it. You slack off at work. You pretend to be someone you’re not. Just admit it all to God! God is more interested in your heart than your sins.
