My Morning Meditation...PERSONAL INTEGRITY

Remember what you do in the day
and at night reflects on you, 
and your family too. 

Proverbs 10:9:
People with integrity walk safely,
      but those who follow crooked paths will slip and fall. 

Star's Interpretation:    Everyone knows that it takes many years to build a reputation and mere minutes to ruin it.  There are certain places I don't go...and certain people I don't affiliate with; because to do so could put me in a trick bag.  I learned the hard way to keep a firm distance away from any impropriety in my life or situations that could lead me to compromise the integrity that I hold dear.  But I am always more concerned with my character than my reputation, because my character is what I really am, while my reputation is merely what others think I am.  Lesson here:  "The way to gain a good reputation is to try to be what you desire to appear.”
