Integrity: Conforming conduct with covenants and principles

"And again, verily I say unto you, blessed is my servant Hyrum Smith; for I, the Lord, love him because of the integrity of his heart, and because he loveth that which is right before me, saith the Lord. . . .

"And again, verily I say unto you, my servant George Miller is without guile; he may be trusted because of the integrity of his heart; and for the love which he has to my testimony I, the Lord, love him." (D&C 124:15, 20.)Leaun G. Otten and C. Max Caldwell wrote in Sacred Truths of the Doctrine and Covenants: "The complete development of man's moral character in conformity with principles of justice and uprightness is termed integrity. A man of integrity is sound, incorruptible, and particularly strict about fulfilling the trusts reposed in him by others. The highest manifestation of integrity is exhibited by those who conform their conduct to the terms of those gospel covenants and promises which they have made. . . ."

" [The scriptures declareT The integrity of the upright shall guide them' (Prov. 11:3), andThe just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.' " (Prov. 20:7.)
