1. Keep your word.
“…let your “Yes” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment” (James 5:12 NKJV). Learn to say “no.” Be careful what you promise and commit to doing. If you commit to less, you will find it easier to maintain integrity with your commitments.
2. Don’t make excuses.
Don’t make excuses for your character flaw. An excuse is really just an effort to justify your sin. Instead, be quick to repent and ask God for His help.
3. Live a life of excellence.
Demand more of yourself and more of others. “There is a man in your kingdom in whom is the Spirit of the Holy God. And in the days of your father, light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, were found in him; and King Nebuchadnezzar your father the king made him chief of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers. Inasmuch as an excellent spirit, knowledge, understanding, interpreting dreams, solving riddles, and explaining enigmas were found in this Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar, now let Daniel be called, and he will give the interpretation” (Daniel 5:11-12 NKJV).
