  • Valor

    Man seldom recognizes the need for adversity. Few have eyes to see its worth. For out of the ashes of adversity arises a man of valor. The noblest of men, putting forth a valiant effort to achieve great deeds. Boldly he presses on to obtain all he was once told he could not. A man tested by fire, wearing his scars like a badge of honor. It is for the betterment of mankind he deems his struggles worth it. It is his recognition of this that makes him great. Humility graces his head like a crown, radiant as the sun. For what good is it for a man to succeed if he is not made a better man than yesterday? And what good is it for a man’s perception of himself to be clouded by undeserved merits? No, it is a man’s character that outweighs them all. A man is only made great by the measure of his character, and adversity is the first stepping stone because it is here a man decides where he will go.

  • The Attitude of the Heart

    The attitude of the heart is so important. The Bible talks about the heart in Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Everyday what you say and do flows from your heart and it flows without a sensor most of the time. If your attitude is bad it will be seen if your attitude is good it will be seen. What we say and do can affect others as well. You have the power to make someone’s day better by being a light, by being kind, by loving. Everyday I make it a point to show the Love of Jesus to everyone I come in contact with. As Mother Theresa said “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” That is my challenge for you today. Who’s day can you make better by being a Light? What can you do to help others? What is God calling you to do? God has a calling for each and everyone of us and the first part of that calling is to Love one another. But in order to do that you must first ask Him to remove anything in your heart that is hindering you from being able to do this. It’s something you can only overcome with God’s help. Without Him it will always be there anger, bitterness, etc. but God can take all of those things and replace it with His unfailing Love.
    Philippians 2:3-5
    Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,
