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.
