America has been desensitized one generation at a time, one court decision at a time, one compromise at a time, and we are drowning in a cesspool of relativism.
“The wicked freely parade and prance about while evil is praised throughout the land” (Psalm 12:8).
What can I do? What can we do? People are often willing to help, but they lack motivation; they also don’t know where to begin. How can we honor God and preserve our values?
Here are just a few ways:
1. Lead a life of integrity regardless of what society promotes.
Although only a select few can change government policy, all of us can build a life of moral integrity while staying committed to God’s Word. Certain “rights” and “wrongs” called absolutes are given by God to save man from himself. One of the best ways to make a difference is to live a life based on moral absolutes, and by letting honesty and integrity guide our decisions. Society changes as individuals change.
M.H. McKee states it well, “Integrity is one of several paths. It distinguishes itself from the others because it is the right path, and the only one upon which you will never get lost.”
Proverbs 11:3 adds, “The integrity of the upright will guide them.”
Combine integrity, wisdom, Scripture study, counsel, and prayer, and you’ll have a better grasp on what God is calling you to do. Unfortunately, we want to hear from God first and work on character later, but God wants us to work on character first — we’ll then be better able to hear. A life of moral excellence and integrity leads to a growing relationship with God. (See 2 Peter 1:5.)
