A Great Way to Improve Your Country.

The true test of civilization is not the census, nor the size of the cities, nor the crops -- no, but the kind of man the country turns out. Ralph Waldo Emerson

You want to improve your country? Then get to work at it yourself.

What kind of parent are you? Do you teach your children respect and the value of honest work? Or do you teach them every man or woman for themselves? Do you teach them share and help the less fortunate in society? Or do you teach them to look down on others misfortune and hardships?

Now think beyond your immediate family and think of the example you teach your nephews and nieces, grandchildren, siblings? What kind of man or woman are you? Do you mentor children in your community, either by noble causes such as Big Brothers and Sister, Boy Scouts, volunteer to be reading buddies in your local school?

You want to see your country become a better country, than get off your lazy buts and do something about it, starting in your family, then your community.

Teach the children by example; they are the leaders of tomorrow. What kind of leaders are you raising?

Where there is great love there are always miracles. — Willa Cather

Prayer: Jehovah Jireh (The Lord our Provider) please provide me with the tools necessary to become a great mentor for the younger generation so that they may not only improve our country, but to lead them to You and a life following You. In the name of Your Holy Son Jesus Christ in Pray. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus; sweet love bless you today and every day.

My Sons are grown now, but I hope as they were growing, that my Husband and I were Teaching Family Values. Children learn what they see...if we Hate, they Hate, if we Love our Fellow man, they most times, do too. Good Hub my Friend, I look forward to Following your Hubs, and Hope you will Follow mine as well.

Thank you for your kind comments.

Yes as parents and teachers children learn more from watching than listening

Hello precious sister.

Thank you for your kind concern, it came at a very opportune time for me. Someone I was having a Bible study with, helped a lot and grew to care a lot about has terminated our relationship. She went back to her old ways. I was feeling a bit down but your simple, yet heartfelt comment. It has lifted my spirit. Thank you.

Yes all is well here thank you.

How are you and your mother getting along?

How are you getting along?

You are both in my prayers every morning.

Is there anything else I can pray for you about or need help with?

Your brother in Christ

Joseph
