This Blog is about becoming a complete person. It’s not about racism. It’s not about politics. It’s not about protests. It’s not about riots. It’s not about the Church, Baptism, or Salvation. It’s about escaping corruption and becoming a complete person.
It all begins with Faith. Faith in family. Faith in friends. Faith in your job. But even more important is Faith in yourself. Walk with confidence. Know you can do what you aspire. Most important is–BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!
Now add Virtue to that. Conform to a standard of doing the right thing. Be of moral excellence. Gain strength through your own courage.
Now add Knowledge to those. Be an excellent student whether in school or on the job. Learn everything you can about your place of employment. By becoming knowledgeable about your workplace, you enhance your chances of advancement.
Now add Self-Control to those. Stay away from those things you shouldn’t be doing. Maintain the self-control over your faith, virtue and knowledge knowing that if you do, those will be become stronger.
Now add Perseverance to those. Don’t give up. Stay steadfast in what you want from life. Be unmoveable in what you are doing. Don’t get distracted!!
Now add Godliness to those. Have a strong belief in God and strive to be your best in obeying what God wants from you. Heaven is a goal.
Now add Kindness to those. Treat people right and they will treat you right. Respect those around you. You may not always agree with them, but you don’t have to be disagreeable towards them. Be cordial and pick your friends wisely.
Now let’s top all of those with Love. Get the hate out of your life. Love your family. Love you friends. Love your job. Most important, LOVE YOURSELF!!
As you can see, these are building blocks. Work on each one as you move up the ladder of life. Faith in yourself is the foundation for all others!!
Have a GREAT day all and remember to SMILE God loves YOU!!
P.S.–If you want a study on becoming a complete Christian, you’ll find this in 2nd Peter 1:1-11.
