TRUTH:

ON BEING AN ETHICAL MAN OF INTEGRITY:

Chuck Swindoll and his staff at Insight for Living ministries some years ago developed seven questions that each of his staff members were to ask each other each week as follows:

1. Have you been with a woman anywhere this week that might
   be seen as compromising.
2. Have any of your financial dealings lacked integrity?
3. Have you exposed yourself to any sexually explicit material?
4. Have you spent adequate time in bible study and prayer?
5. Have you given priority time to your family.
6. Have you fulfilled the mandates of your calling?
7. Have you just lied to me?
