Integrity Demands Yes Or No.

Key Verse

“But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil” (Matthew 5:37).

Text — Matthew 5:33-37


The virtue of integrity is very crucial and indispensable in a believer’s life. Jesus, in our passage today, places a spotlight on truthfulness and integrity and challenges us to live by what we say and believe. No wonder Albert Einstein said, “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.” Learn to keep promises made, either to God or man. People who tell lies, no matter how little, have Satan as their father (John 8:44).

Integrity comes from self-awareness, salvation, consecration, and obedience to biblical principles. Also, to maintain integrity, you must have courage and discipline despite challenges and opposition from your peers and others. Practicing integrity makes you trustworthy and reliable for promotions and good leadership positions like Daniel in Babylon and Joseph in Egypt. It also gives you access to God’s favor, protection, and guidance. As a Christian, always examine yourself to see if your actions reflect your words. Let your ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ be truthful.


Let your ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ be truthful


Are your words trustworthy or deceitful?

Prayer for today

Oh God, may the qualities of integrity shine forth in me in Jesus’ name.
