A tale of two integrities: joyful humility leading to virtue

November 19, 2019

2 Maccabees offers Christians examples of perfect fidelity to the law of God, even to the extent of giving one's life, with a concern for setting a good example for others. While we can honor this model of integrity in faith, Christians are called to an even greater form of integrity: humble admission of sin and a of a need for God's presence in our lives. Zacchaeus welcome Jesus with joy and was willing to repent, and every Christian is called to practice this same integrity daily: seeking perfection while humbly admitting that God is the source of this perfection, not our own wills.
