Thought for the Week: Psalm 101:2

“I will study the way that is blameless.  When shall I attain it?  I will walk with integrity of heart within my house” (Psalm 101:2).

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my favorite books (ah, the English teacher in me) because of its simple perspective on deep issues of right versus wrong.  Atticus Finch (the father of the protagonist, Scout) is an upstanding man described as being the same in the house as he is outside of the house.  This description has lingered with me as a true picture of integrity.

So often we put on a kind, confident, or composed face for all outside of the house and when we get home, our loved ones get the brunt of our anger, insecurities, and turmoil.  Perhaps it’s because we believe they will never leave us or perhaps it’s because we don’t necessarily get to choose who our family is, but either way, we can easily give our worst to those we are the closest to.  Let your marriage operate differently!  Walk with integrity of heart in your house so that you are the same woman inside the house as you are outside.

Heavenly Father, all the goodness in me is a gift from You.  There is nothing righteous in me apart from You, so I thank You for Your grace and for Your Spirit Who transforms my heart.  Strengthen me to be a light in my home so that my words, thoughts, and deeds will always be those that reflect You.  May that integrity of heart greatly bless my husband and family.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
