Integrity Pays Huge Dividend

I have heard so much been talked about the need for a Christian to have INTEGRITY. However, a recent event in which a businessman showed a high level of Integrity really touched my heart.

He was approached by a newbie in the business world who just got a business opportunity to carry out a job. The newbie lacked the financial capacity required and the fund required was huge. The contract is actually bigger than anything the chrisitian businessman has ever handled in all his years of operating as an entrepreneur.

Naturally, one would have expected the christian businessman to take over the contract and promise the newbie a cut in the expected profit.

Rather, the chrisitian businessman refuse to take over the job and even refused to have a share in anything that may come out of the contract. Instead, he used his wealth of experience to guide the newbie on how he can raise fund for the contract and carry it out.

When I was told the story, I was really dazed. It sounded too good to be true. But it was easy for me to verify. I confirmed that that was what really happened. Some months after the incident, I got a new report from the Christian Businessman. The Lord has smiled on him. He is been awarded a contract that is far above that which the newbie got. For sure the Lord is faithful to reward integrity.

It is important for us to remember that we must first seek the kingdom of God and all of our needs will be added unto us. Because of our impatience and lack of faith the enemy either stops us short or runs us past our blessings.The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and His favor will be evident in that man's life.
