Keeping Honesty and Integrity

"Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us." (Titus 2:6-8)

This passage gives some practical reasons and ways to live out our faith. Though these words were written to Titus (a leader in the early church) they apply to anyone! We should: be self controlled; serious about life, do good deeds as often as possible to set an example for others, love the truth, think before we speak!!! Why should we do these things?! Because we represent God, who is HOLY! We are an example to others! OUR behavior will SILENCE our critics!! “God, let your light shine through us, let it not be our own words, God, that stream from our mouths, Lord, but yours!”
