Lowering the threat level

May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you. Ps. 25:21

It’s easier to feel justified in cutting corners and compromising integrity if we elevate our problems to crisis status and lose hope.  Honorable behavior may require that we face the problems we’d rather avoid but facing them with integrity and honesty offers us a sense of security and peace. Whatever problems we face, our true friends will not abandon us and God will not leave us without wisdom or support.

Lord, help me to deal honorably with each issue I face today.
