A Life Lived Right, Not Being Right

Day Six.

'A man should never be ashamed to own that he has been in the wrong, which is but saying that he is wiser today than yesterday.' ~Jonathan Swift

Today, I'd like you to ponder the true definition of "integrity." We use this word incorrectly, to mean "character" or "strong values." If you look it up in Webster's, it says, "That which works. The soundness of a thing." And that is what our effort is about here, for these 30 days. To do that which works. NOT to be right, but to have lives that are sound, whole, effective and something to be proud of.

Being right is WRONG, not sound, a low character choice. It's the simplest of choices. The child-like grabbing of the temporary prize. It makes others avoid and even dislike you.

Surely not the choice of integrity.
