He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.                                                                         Proverbs 10:9

A study was conducted of 1500 business managers to determine what workers value most in a boss. It revealed that employees respect leaders who are competent, have the ability to inspire, and are skillful in providing direction. But there was one quality that they admired even more – Integrity. Above all skills, they wanted team leaders who kept their word, who were honest, and who were trustworthy. While this study holds true for managers and leaders, it should be said of all of us.  Our “Sacred Six” value for the month of April is “Integrity.”  The writer of Proverbs says, ” He who walks in Integrity walks securely.” It’s not always easy to do the right thing, but it’s always rewarding. Integrity is a trait that applies to all people, no matter what their position. It should be at the heart of every person. As we go thru this month, and this year, let us walk in “Integrity.”  I will end with a great quote from a great man, “The supreme quality is unquestionably integrity. Without it no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.”  Dwight D. Eisenhower
