Charles Buck Theological Dictionary
Purity of mind, free from any undue bias or principle, Proverbs 11:3 . Many hold, that a certain artful sagacity, founded upon knowledge of the world, is the best conductor of every one who would be a successful adventurer in life, and that a strict attention to integrity would lead them into danger and distress. But, in answer to this it is justly observed,
1. That the guidance of integrity is the safest under which it leads us is, upon the whole, the freest from dangers, Proverbs 3:21 , &c.
2. It is unquestionably the most honourable; for integrity is the foundation of all that is high in character among mankind, Proverbs 4:8 .
3. It is the most conductive to felicity, Philippians 4:6-7 . Proverbs 3:17 .
4. Such a character can look forward to eternity without dismay. Romans 2:7 .
