Living With Integrity

Living With Integrity

DAY 4 OF 7


When the sun rose that morning, Daniel and his fellow mountaineers were on the verge of their life’s greatest achievement. After days of arduous climbing, they were now only three hours from the summit of Mount Everest. But their character was about to be tested in a way they could have never anticipated.

He’d been sitting alone in sub-zero temperatures for twelve hours after his fellow climbers left him for dead.

Or if you’re a parent, you may have to pass up a career goal or cut back on your busy schedule to be present in your kids’ lives. It’s a choice that has always faced God’s people because it drills down and exposes our true priorities: Do what pleases you, or do what pleases the Lord?

That day on the mountain, Daniel counted the cost and did the right thing. He sacrificed greatly to benefit someone else. Creating the family you’ve dreamed about may require you to do the same thing.
