Integrity: What's your definition?

Here is Rick Warren's:

  • I am what I am.
  • I am what you see.
  • What you see is what you get.
  • It is NOT perfection or perfect honesty.
  • Base word is integer. Integer means "a complete entity or a whole number". Integrity is the whole picture of who you are. Togetherness of person.
  • As a result, Warren suggests that if you have integrity, your life cannot be compartmentalized. You cannot live in integrity and have your:
    • Personal compartment
    • Public compartment
    • Wife compartment
    • Anger compartment
    • Friend compartment
    • Pornographic compartment
    • Educational compartment
    • Spiritual compartment
    • Greedy compartment
  • Instead, your life is together as the WHOLE of who you are!
  • Finally, it is REALLY being who you REALLY are!

Wow!! That is a powerful way of thinking of integrity.
