In the competitive world of sports, there is an ever present temptation not to be a man or woman of integrity. After all, who will know? Were you in bounds, did you foul, was it a false start, does it really matter if your athlete uses steroids? The value God places on honesty and authenticity is essential for true winners. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes identifies integrity as a value that is essential in all walks of life, whether on the field, in the classroom or in the business world. Learn how to demonstrate Christlikeness privately and publicly with Integrity. Comprised of a Bible verse, a story, a principle, an application and a prayer, these inspirational readings foster the core value of integrity. Topics covered include: integrity in the face of defeat, when the other team cheats, when its difficult, when no one is looking, when you're on the bench and when you score the winning run.
