All CrossFitters are Welcome!
Congrats again to all our runners!! 26.2 and 13.1 first timers!! So proud of your hard work, diligence, and perserverance!!
Integrity is not just doing the right thing; itâ€™s a matter of having the right heart and allowing the person you are on the inside to match the person you are on the outside. This is how God is. This is how his people should be. Perhaps a good word to think of is â€œconsistency.â€ There must be consistency between what is inside and what is outside. God is totally consistent. His actions and behaviors always match his character and nature. And his goal for us is nothing less. Christâ€™s objective for his disciples is to make us disciplined people. In the words of John Ortberg, â€œDisciplined people can do the right thing at the right time in the right way for the right reason.â€
Itâ€™s self-evident that a hypocrite is unqualified to guide others toward attaining higher character. No one respects a person who talks a good game but fails to play by the rules. What a leader does will have a greater impact on those he or she wishes to lead than what a leader says. A person may forget 90 percent of what a leader says, but he or she will never forget how the leader lives. This is why Paul tells Timothy:
Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. 1 Timothy 4:15-16
