“…who despises a vile person but honors those who fear the LORD; who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and does not change their mind;” Psalm 15:4
So much of what David writes starts in the heart. It begins with character and asks how we will decide to put our feet into action. The heart guides our life with a mind that has been filled with truth. When the mind is set on doing what is right even to the place it might cost your character, that is when you are in the process of being developed.
The trouble comes when the heart is being tested. We are all put through the fire at times, but it is the roar of the heat that will prove what is in the heart. When the heart is being tested will we be honest? Will we allow ourselves to be true even when it hurts? Will we be true even if it costs us a promotion or a financial gain?
Remaining true will establish a road of integrity, and others will trust us, realizing that we are not saying one thing and doing another. They will see us as people who follow through with an unwillingness to sway depending on popularity or however it may benefit us. They will understand we are honest individuals who are unmovable.
