Spotting, the one that doesn't belong in this list is pretty easy. Three of the numbers are whole numbers, or integers. The other is just a small fraction away from being a whole number but it is not quite an integer. Just a small bit off though keeps it from being an integer.

Likewise, it doesn't take much to make a man not exactly a man of integrity either. Integrity and integer have the same root word meaning complete or whole. If a number isn't completely whole, it's not whole at all. It only takes being a little different around our coworkers or a little different around our family or fellow church members to keep us from being people of integrity.

Integrity goes beyond honesty. It is being the same all the time no matter what.

Are you the same or do you live a double life that is less than whole?

Psalm 51:6 (HCSB) - Surely You desire integrity in the inner self, and You teach me wisdom deep within.

Proverbs 13:6 (NIV) - Righteousness guards the man of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.

Proverbs 11:3 - The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

Titus 2:7 (NIV) - In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity.

In all you do, show integrity.
