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

A Friendly Reminder

My friends are my estate.” Emily Dickinson

There was a man all alone; he had neither son nor brother. There was no end to his toil, yet his eyes were not content with his wealth. "For whom am I toiling," he asked, "and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?" 
This too is meaningless a miserable business! Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Ecclesiastes 4:8-10

Abet: “to assist or support in the achievement of a purpose” Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Lets always remember the importance of our friends. In a world where we can be constantly entertained by media, and satisfied by social networks on the internet, it's easy to forget about our real friends, both the ones we have and the ones we could make. But friends are so important to life. They can act as a team mate and abet our purposes, they can be an ally when we can't accomplish something on our own, and they can temper our selfish desires and edify our actions when we go down the wrong path. I'm always amazed at the value my friends bring to my life. Let's always remember the importance of our friends.
