Jess Bousa relates a great story about golfer Bobby Jones losing a major tournament when he assessed himself one penalty stroke for touching his golf ball. He displayed rare integrity in what might seem like a small thing. But small lapses in integrity signal larger ones down the road.
"And He said to him, 'Well done, good servant, because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities." Luke 19:17
If a person cannot be trusted with a small thing, who would trust them with a large thing?
