(2) Be the person who ...

Sunday, July 28, 2019

Improving on my previous blog

Be the person who understands and forgives;
Be the person who has a nurturing heart;
Be the person who listens instead of judges;
Be the person others can count on, and most importantly by your example, are inspired to leave still other people better off.

Start...
with a vision of a community that becomes more nurturing and stable as a result of many following your example;
with a vision of communities where the opportunity for all citizens to grow and prosper is not denied by the actions or non-action of the unwise;
with a positive vision of communities that will provide an educated and confident citizenship that has faith in the well being of of their children and grandchildren, and future generations to come.

Act upon this vision by...
reading stories of virtuous people who you admire, and note that their strengths and values that make them admirable can be made your own;
by ignoring the worldly impression that you as an individual are powerless to effect a positive change in your community or country, and acting with faith that participation in the election of politicians who best share your views, works to the benefit of all, and with faith that your example will inspire other good citizens to do their part also.
lastly by building upon your strengths so that others can be blessed by your efforts and so that everyone including you can prosper.

NOTE: I consider myself an Independent, and know that others can disagree with my idea of what is virtuous, so do what you feel is right based on your own feelings of what is right. It is your choice, I only ask that you be willing to challenge your own opinions by giving at least some weight to opposing view points before you make the final decision when the time is ripe. I consider views expressed on both CNN and FOX for the well being of my self education and feel this world will be a better place if others follow my example.

I wish all a success and hope you enjoyed my sharing these thoughts. Thank you for reading my Blog. Comments below or via Spark mail are welcome, With Love - Bob

    Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
    and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
    and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful (from I Peter 5:5-8).
