The value and the purpose of living are in one’s integrity, existing for eternity. While everything should be treated as morning mist. A person’s integrity is different from his physical looks, whether blind or crippled. There are those wishing that their physical looks ought to have been better, but this has nothing to do with the person’s overbearing integrity. This was clarified by Jesus who declared:
“If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right-hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell” (Matthew 5:29-30 NIV).
The majority of people suffer from a crisis of identity. They do things according to the viewpoint of others, rather than themselves. They always seek the approval of others, rather than fulfilling their own dreams. Such people would be deficient in integrity when making judgments from the viewpoint of others.
This should not be construed as advocating for disagreements with other people, necessarily. There is nothing wrong with agreeing with other people, as long as the proffered information agrees with one’s own intellectual viewpoint. Each human should consider him/herself as a lost child of God.
Like a prodigal son, one should not seek to travel back to his Father via somebody else. The decision to go back to one’s father is made out of one’s free will. His decision to return to his father is made out of his personal integrity, which has got nothing to do with the viewpoint of other people.
