Job - a Man of Integrity

No one else on earth is like him, a man of perfect integrity. (Job 1:8)

   Integrity is not an inborn trait.  It takes time, effort, and discipline to develop a life of integrity.  Many factors are involved in building character.  Job didn't achieve integrity in a day.  God watched him for years before coming to the point where he could say, "Job is blameless in all that he does."

   The world doesn't seem to care about character, but God does.  As God looks down at my character, what does he see?  Does he see a compassionate heart?  An obedient heart?  A heart that cares only for self?  Nothing is hidden from the eyes of an all seeing God.

   Would God be able to say of you, "Now there's a person of integrity who is blameless in all that he does?"
