They answered him, “He was a hairy man with a leather girdle bound about his loins.” And he said, “It is Elijah the Tishbite.
2 Kings 1:8
The Hebrew word describing Elijah literally means “lord of hair.” It is believed he dressed differently than others to show contempt for the accepted norms of the time. He purposefully stood out in the crowd.

IntegrityTo have courage to move forward and pursue what God calls us to do each of us needs a good dose of Integrity—more than simple honesty, it’s the key to success. A person with integrity has the ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances. Drawing on experiences from his work, Dr. Henry Cloud, a clinical psychologist, leadership coach, corporate consultant and nationally syndicated radio host, shows how our character can keep us from achieving all we want to (or could) be.
by Henry Cloud
In Integrity, Dr. Cloud explores the six qualities of character that define integrity, and how people with integrity: Are able to connect with others and build trust, are oriented toward reality, finish well, embrace the negative, are oriented toward increase, have an understanding of the transcendent.
Integrity is not something that you either have or don’t, but instead is an exciting growth path that all of us can engage in and enjoy.
