When Using my Right is not Right1 min read
A couple of things happened to me professionally over the last one week. During a conversation with another professional, he proposed a line of action which could be considered a smart and legitimate move.
The only problem is that it wouldn’t line up with what I consider as personal integrity.
It wasn’t that I was going back on something I had promised. But I implied the promise based on the way the professional relationship had evolved.
I was, therefore, going to go the way David wanted – “keep my promise even when it hurts” Ps 14:5b
I was choosing to let go of a right I had because I believe it is right to do it in order to maintain my personal integrity.
Sometimes, it is right not to use my rights even when I am within my rights to use them.
It can be what integrity demands
