Who is a just man but he whose God is the Lord? This is not my idea. God, the Bible, His word, tells us that the natural man’s attempts at righteousness are like filthy rags. It takes being born-again, trained and renewed by the Word of God, and led by His Spirit to become “just” or “righteous.”
Integrity that is of value consists of being in Christ as a new creature, full of the character and nature of God. Walking in this relationship with our Savior, Jesus the Christ, makes a man a role model and mentor, a father and grand father of worth.
Such a man will raise his children “in the way they should go,” so that the blessing of Abraham will be their legacy.
