His wife said to him,
’Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!’
He replied, ‘You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?’
In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.
Integrity is an increasingly valuable and precious character trait these days, made the more so by its apparent scarcity in society at large. What a shame that Job’s wife didn’t value her husband’s integrity as much as he did!
Maintaining our spiritual integrity ought to be a non-negotiable aspect of our character because it honours God.
