- Accountability to gift-givers and a responsibility to use the gifts to advance God’s kingdom.Paul addresses this in 2 Corinthians 8:20-21 when Titus is sent to receive the collection. Paul says: “We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man.”
- The desire to be an example of Christian integrity.Paul gives the following advice to Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show yourself approved by God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
- Modeling of Christ likeness. In John 18:20, where John gives an account of Jesus’ trial, Jesus is clear about the importance of transparency and integrity. This example applies to our interactions with other Christians as well as the public. In the passage, the high priest questions Jesus about His disciples and teaching. Jesus replies: “I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in the synagogue and in the temple, where the Jews always meet, and I said nothing in secret.” We do not have secret accounts or agendas.
- An expression of gratitude toward God for your ministry.In 2 Corinthians 4:1-2, Paul says transparency and integrity come out of an appreciation to God for the ministry: “Therefore, since we have this ministry through the mercy we have received, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the secret things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by expressing the truth and commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”
