And let us not grow weary in well doing, for in due
season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have
therefore, opportunity, let us do good unto all men,
especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Good deeds have a way of coming back to bless us.
John Wooden, the great basketball coach who passed
away last summer at the age of 99, was admired for the
inspirational influence he left on players and fans
alike.His life was shaped by a seven-point creed. He
often passed it along to others, explaining that his
father had given him this bit of advice upon his
graduation from grammar school.
Be true to yourself. Make each day your masterpiece.
Help others. Drink deeply from good books, especially
the Bible. Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter
against a rainy day. Pray for guidance and give thanks
for your blessings every day.
When we are kind to others and practice a merciful
attitude, we become recipients of mercy ourselves.
Just as the sower reaps the crop he has sown, so do
merciful people reap what has been planted in the lives
Don't get tired of doing good! (From Turning Point)
Talent is God-given; be humble. Fame is man-given;
be grateful. Conceit is self-given; be careful.
