The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

The Golden Rule, February 05, 2011

Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.” Coach John Wooden

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12

Solicitous: “characterized by or showing interest or concern” New Oxford American Dictionary

History is full of stories about people rising against despotic leaders to gain their God given rights as citizens of this world. Recently we've seen the people rise up in Africa and the Middle east to fight for their futures. History has seen democracy and freedom rise from the downfall of selfish rule at the hands of selfless leadership. As people, it is our responsibility to try and improve the world around us. In life let's do our best to be solicitous and live by the rule that sums up the Law and the Prophets. In so doing we will surely strengthen our bonds with our fellow people and Heavenly Father. Let's pray that the people fighting for freedom around the world will find what they seek and deserve and that their dictators will not be replaced by people seeking power but by people seeking to impart it.
