The Importance of Words
In our earthly realm, a business leader, politician, or coach can speak or write words of encouragement that result in people achieving more and reaching heights previously thought unattainable. The opposite can also occur when charismatic leaders influence their followers to commit atrocities.
You Can Do It
It has been said that “your attitude, not your aptitude will determine your altitude. Translated, this means that the game of life is played from the neck up.
Having a positive mental attitude on life covers a multitude of weaknesses. Turning “I can’t into I can. Getting rid of “stinkin’ thinkin’. Overcoming obstacles in life and going after goals with passion is the hallmark of successful people from all walks of life.
Living a Christ-Centered Life
Christ said in John 14: 16 “I am the way…the truth…and the life. No one comes to the father except through me.” Christians face much persecution around the globe today.
In the U.S. the forces aligned to reduce and even eliminate the positive role Christianity plays in the public square have never been bolder. As Christians we need to strengthen our relationship with Christ. Seek His face…Seek his will and purpose in our life…Seek Him in Prayer… Seek Him in Scripture.
Creating a More Perfect Union
Our Founders were inspired by God when they drafted the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Since earning my Masters degree in Political Science in 1983 I have witnessed a gradual but persistent attack on our founding documents and our Democratic Republic. As President Reagan said our republic is a fragile thing. Totalitarian forces seek to divide our country, use the federal government to suppress free speech and punish opposition voices.
The only way these forces will win is if “good men” do nothing and sit idly by. Work within the framework of the Constitution and make your voices heard at the ballot box. Take an active role in knowing what your representatives are voting for. Limit our Federal government, reduce and eliminate onerous regulations, reduce taxes, respect our individual freedoms.
