Psalm 101:2 
”I will pay attention to the way of integrity. 
When will you come to me? 
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“ (CSB)

I’m finding my way down the road of right living,
but how long before you show up?
I’m doing the very best I can,
and I’m doing it at home, where it counts. (MSG)

I misunderstood the man at the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. A person in our group who is uncomfortable with heights, especially when they are leaning, wanted to walk the winding stairway back down to the level ground.

When I asked the man if we could go down, I thought he said, “There are two ways.” One way was back down the stairs. The other, I supposed, was over the side. This was quite a long and most likely terminal route. When I asked for clarification, the Keeper of the Chain who kept us from going down the stairs said in slightly more understandable English, “You have to wait.”

Ah. Very well then. My trembling relative and I would hold on for dear life and wait at the head of the line to go down the stairs and not over the edge. 

King David declared, “I will pay attention to the way of integrity.” He also said, “I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.” Of the two ways before him, he chose the pathway of integrity. He chose the path of doing the right thing the right way for the right reason in the right timing. 

I love The Message paraphrase where it says, “I’m doing the very best I can,
and I’m doing it at home, where it counts.” 

Start where you are. Do the right thing. Repeat. This is the way of integrity. A lifestyle of integrity unties a lot of knots. It smooths some rough places. It makes good outcomes more likely. 

How well do you want this day to go? Walk the pathway of integrity.

I will walk the pathway of integrity.

Our Father, lead me along the pathway of integrity. Lead me from the time I arise and leave for the day’s activities until I return home and find rest. Empower me to live with integrity in all things at all times. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
