THE PROFIT OF UPRIGHTNESS
By DIGC03 April 2020
Integrity upholds destiny just as iniquity destroys destiny.
SCRIPTURE: It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes…Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. Daniel 6:1, 3-4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Integrity upholds destiny just as iniquity destroys destiny; to live upright is to end right up.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that Daniel was set above the princes and presidents because an excellent spirit was found in him. The princes wanted to find an occasion of accusation against him, but they could not find any because there was no fault or error in him. He was faultless and blameless.
Always know that integrity upholds destiny just as iniquity destroys destiny. Let me give you one illustration: The lion is the king of all the animals that move on land while the eagle is the king of all the birds that fly in the sky. And one thing that is common to these two animals is that they will never taste corruption.
Once a piece of meat is rotten, it is not for the eagle. It may be for the vulture but not for the eagle. If a piece of meat is meant for the eagle, it must be fresh and dripping blood. The eagle has only one mate in its lifetime and that is why it is always up. No wonder it can fly at ten thousand feet above sea level and can also carry a weight that is three times its size. The eagle is regarded as a symbol of power, royalty and decency across many cultures in many nations of the world. For instance, the eagle is in the Coat of arms of countries like Nigeria, the USA and others. One reason the Eagle is the king of the birds is because of its purity.
Beloved, to live upright is to end right up. The profits of uprightness far outweigh any gain of iniquity. My counsel is, make up your mind to fulfil destiny by living right.
Remember this: Integrity upholds destiny just as iniquity destroys destiny; to live upright is to end right up.
- Refuse to be entangled with the corruption of the people of the world.
- Make up your mind to live right always.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to live right always. Deliver me from the pollutions and corruptions of this world, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
