Every single day there is a temptation to FALL…to get off course…to get distracted. Some days you’re challenged to stand up for what’s right!
Living Bible - He has told you what he wants, and this is all it is: to be fair, just, merciful, and to walk humbly with your God.
Erma Bombeck: “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.”
Winston Churchill: “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
Sometimes you don’t know what your education, training, difficulties will do for other people until you’re called to “Make a difference.”
Dr. David Jeremiah: "So if you believe in something that's good, honest, and right, stand up for it."
Deuteronomy 6:18 – “And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord.”
From Ann Landers’ column:
The difference between Winners and Whiners is – The Whiner says, "I don’t know, and I’m sure nobody else does either." The Winner says, "Let’s find out."
When a Whiner makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn’t my fault." When a Winner makes a mistake, he says, "I’m responsible and I’m going to see what can be done to set things right."
When a Winner makes a commitment, he honors it. When a Whiner makes a promise, he keeps it if he doesn’t change his mind.
